LAHORE FIFA Disciplinary Committee imposed a fine of 3,000 Swiss francs (2,300 euros) to the Algerian striker Rafik Saifi for slapping a woman journalist at the end of Algeria-USA clash during the World Cup 2010 in South Africa. Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) President Makhdoom Syed Faisal Saleh Hayat informed this after attending the FIFA Disciplinary Committee Meet at the Home of FIFA in Zurich. The Committee discussed about 34 cases in four categories. One of them was from World Cup 2010 in which Rafik was involved in a fracas with a female reporter at the Pretorias Loftus Versfeld stadium following the 0-1 defeat to the United States which led to their World Cup exit on June 23. The alleged incident in the mixed zone - where reporters can interview players behind a barrier -saw Rafik slapping the face of Asma Halimi, a journalist with Algerian daily newspaper Competition. Halimi slapped the striker back as a reflex and then reported him to FIFA. The incident was the culmination of a year of bad feeling between the pair. Two cases were of ignoring electronic International Transfer Certificates (ITC) in FIFA Transfer Matching System (TMS) - an on-line system implemented by FIFA last October and is intended to simplify the transfer process, which was previously done by sending and re-sending faxes. With the help of TMS, all parties involved can help the process move very quickly. Five cases were of matches that were not organised by FIFA and 26 cases belong to countries/clubs who failed to submit fines imposed on them for various reasons in the past. Earlier, Faisal chaired three AFC Disciplinary Committee meetings within 128 days from March 22 to July 28 at KL to decide several cases. The FIFA Disciplinary Committee is made up of a Chairman, two Vice Chairmans and 18 members. Faisal Saleh Hayat is among members that belong to 20 countries around the globe.
