Nyantakyi has been in the news in the last few weeks after he was banned and also fined for breaching three of FIFA’s Code of Ethics.
Last week, the world’s football governing body released a statement announcing that the Wa All Stars owner has been banned from all football related activities for life.
In addition, the lawyer cum football administrator has also been fined an amount of CHF 500,000 (GH₡2.4million) by FIFA.
Christine-Marie admits that her husband made genuine mistakes, but rejects claims that her husband’s ban was as a result of criminal findings.
“Fifa is an association and it’s governed by a code of ethics; so if you break the code of ethics; you’re sanctioned; so whatever has happened; it’s a sanction; it’s not a criminal finding. People are saying Fifa has banned him so what’s Ghana doing. We’re talking about two different things here. To prove that somebody has committed a crime, you need to go through some processes. And the law says that a person is presumed to be innocent until proven otherwise,” she noted.
