Investigators have recommended a ban of at least four years and a fine of at least 15,000 Swiss francs ($15,120) against Derrick, who is president of the Caribbean Football Union and general secretary of the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association, the ethics panel said in a statement.

The probe centres on alleged conflicts of interest, offering and accepting gifts and other benefits, mismanagement of funds, abuse of position and disloyalty, it said.
