Bin Hammam, 63, has been fighting charges he tried to buy FIFA delegate votes in campaigning to unseat the world body’s long-standing president Sepp Blatter in a leadership election last year.
The scandal earned him a FIFA life ban from football and he was provisionally replaced after nine years as president of Asia’s soccer governing body pending appeals.
AFC said in a statement posted on its website late Monday that it had handed Bin Hammam a 30-day suspension, following an external audit of the confederation’s financial accounts.
