FIFA fines Brazilian federation in doping case

August 15, 2013

SAO PAULO (AP) — FIFA says it has fined the Brazilian football federation for failing to provide information relating to a doping case.

Football’s governing body said Thursday that it fined the federation 10,000 Swiss francs (about $10,700) for “not complying with the request from the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.”

FIFA said documents and information related to the case were not submitted “within the deadline.”

FIFA did not immediately disclose the name of the player, but Brazilian media widely reported that it was related to former Vasco da Gama playmaker Carlos Alberto, who was cleared of doping charges after a test came back positive for a banned diuretic.
