FIFA slams former head of referees a lifetime ban for sexual harassment

The former Head of Referees at Haiti’s football federation (FHF), Rosnick Grant, has been banned from the sport for life after being found guilty of abusing his position and sexual harassment, world football’s governing body FIFA said on Friday.

FIFA also said they had imposed a 100,000 Swiss franc (Sh12 million) fine on the official.

Grant, a former international referee, was provisionally suspended from all football-related activities in February – a ban which was extended in June – pending the investigation into his conduct.
