Court orders Egypt football federation board dissolved

29 March 2016, 13:44

Cairo - Egypt's top administrative court on Sunday ordered that the board of Egyptian Football Federation be dissolved following allegations of rigging during the 2012 election of its members.

The judgement, which is final and can not be appealed, ordered Egypt's minister of youth and sports to dissolve the board.

Two candidates who had participated in the October 11, 2012 election for the federation's board had filed a case alleging that the results were rigged at that time.

The same court also ordered on Sunday the dissolution of Cairo-based Al-Ahly club's board over similar reasons.

On Sunday, the higher court upheld the earlier verdict.
