sbo128 Seven referees and linesmen from Ghana have been handed lengthy bans as the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Tuesday announced a new round of sanctions for match officials caught up in a bribery sting.Referee David Laryea was banned for life and six other officials received 10-year suspensions.

Eleven officials were sanctioned last month in an unprecedented clean-up by African soccer’s governing sbo128 body, which has long been plagued by bribery allegations.

Kenyan sbo128 linesman Marwa Range, who had been due to officiate at this year's World Cup, was filmed receiving a $600 bribe during this year's African Nations Championship in Morocco and was given a life ban.

Range, a reserve official at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, had earlier been removed from the list of referees for this year's tournament in Russia. CAF also suspended a further 14 officials from eight different countries, including four Ghanaians.
