Equatorial Guinea : CAF absolves Vice-President of FEGUIFUT of attempted bribery in the Nzalang-Mali match.

The First Vice-President of the Equatoguinean Football Federation (FEGUIFUT), Gustavo Ndong Edu Akumu, accompanied by the Equatoguinean lawyer, Sergio Abeso Tomo, showed his emotion, at a press conference called on Wednesday 21st September, on receiving the sentence from the African Football Federation (CAF), in which he was absolved of all allegations and slurs.

The irregularities found in the documents from the accusers, and the lack of proof of bribery, were some of the anomalies pointed out during the process, adding to the report from the match commissioner, which did not mention the bribery case, and the fact that the accusation documents were not signed or dated; only a mere attribution from a referee, while the other referees deny any bribery.

The judicial process took place on 3rd September by CAF; and the sentence was issued on 19th, regarding accusations of an attempt to rig the Nzalang-Mali match.

The CAF Disciplinary Commission, who had accused him of match-fixing, has found that Gustavo Ndong Edu is innocent, following investigations by the Appeals Commission from the same footballing body, and has absolved him of all allegations, as no proof was found in relation to the accusation.

The First Vice-President of FEGUIFUT expressed gratitude for the support of football fans from our country, and his lawyers, Sergio Abeso Tomo and the French lawyer, Beatriz Lobier-Tupin, for their help during the judicial process.
