The Supreme Media Council, headed by Makram Mohamed Ahmed, decided to ban the president of Egypt’s Al-Zamalek football club, Moratda Mansour, from appearing in all media platforms for an additional two months.
The decision will include entire media outlets, video, audio and print, as well as websites and newspapers.
However, the ban will not include his participation in parliamentary activities.
In September 2018, the African Football Confederation (CAF) decided to suspend Mansour from any activity related to sports or to attend meetings of sports officials, and fined him $40,000 after he verbally attacked the organisation’s officials.
For the same reason, the Egyptian Olympic Committee banned Mansour from participating in or attending any sports event and announced not accepting any documents carrying his signature in October 2018. Mansour was also banned from appearing on broadcasted or written media outlets for three months.
