Lausanne - FIFA has suspended former Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) president David Chung for six years for corruption, world football's governing body announced on Friday.
FIFA's Ethics Committee ruled that Chung, who resigned from the OFC in April, "offered and accepted gifts" and "acted under a conflict of interest", banning him and hitting him with a 100 000 Swiss franc fine.
Chung is of Malaysian origin but holds a Papua New Guinea passport and was head of that nation's football association and a member of the FIFA Council.
He resigned his presidency a few days before the OFC announced an investigation after a FIFA audit found "potential irregularities" in the construction of the confederation's headquarters in Auckland.
Chung became OFC president in 2011 after his predecessor Tahitian Reynald Temarii was suspended by FIFA for corruption.
