The soccer body stated that Gordon Derrick, the Caribbean Football Union president breached the rules requiring him to cooperate with the investigation. The case came to the limelight after Derrick was excluded from standing in a 2016 presidential election to lead the CONCACAF, the North American soccer organisation.
