FIFA on Friday suspended the head of the Brazilian football federation Marco Polo Del Nero for 90 days over a breach of its rules.

The 76-year-old, a former member of the FIFA Council, is the latest prominent South American official to be banned by the sport's governing body as part of its investigation into a vast corruption scandal. He has not been extradited from Brazil to face the charges.

FIFA's decision has been made by the adjudicatory chamber of their Ethics Committee, with the investigatory chamber now set to explore the matter.

The decision was adopted at the express request of the chairwoman of the investigation body of the Ethics Committee, in charge of the formal investigation of the procedure that affects Del Nero, in accordance with the FIFA Code of Ethics. During the suspension, which took effect immediately, he is banned from all soccer.

Even trial judge Pamela Chen made passing comment on how del Nero could still be running Brazilian football (he is one of those indicted by U.S. authorities), suggesting he must have "friends in high places".
