Issa Hayatou, the former Confederation of African Football (CAF) president, and Hicham El Amrani, CAF’s former secretary general, have been fined $27.9 million each by the Egyptian Economic Court (EEC).
The EEC ruled that the pair flouted Egyptian law when signing a $1billion deal between Caf and French media company Lagardere in 2015.
The deal was not open to free and fair tender as required by Egyptian law, the EEC said.
Hayatou, who presided over CAF from 1988 to 2017, and El Amrani, who also left his position last year, will both appeal.
