Referee Lamptey banned for life

The Disciplinary Committee of the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has decided to ban the Ghanaian match official Joseph Odartei Lamptey from any kind of football-related activity at both national and international.
According to FIFA, Odartey Lamptey is banned from administrative, sports or any other activities related to football.
The official was found guilty of breaching art. 69 par. 1 (unlawfully influencing match results) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia qualifying match between South Africa and Senegal on 12 November 2016, a statement from FIFA noted.
On the other hand, all charges against the Ghanaian match official David Lionheart Nii Lartey Laryea, whose behaviour had also been the subject of investigations, were dismissed by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.
FIFA follows a zero-tolerance policy on match manipulation and is committed to protecting the integrity of football.
As a result, FIFA will continue with its ongoing efforts to combat match manipulation through a variety of initiatives, which include the monitoring of international betting and a confidential reporting system with a dedicated integrity hotline and e-mail address.
