The investigation started in May 2015, and gathered momentum after Webb pleaded guilty in U.S. federal court in November to one count of racketeering conspiracy, three counts of wire fraud conspiracy, and three counts of money laundering conspiracy.

Webb, 51, who also served as president of the Cayman Islands Football Association, has been barred for life from participating in any football-related activity at both the club and international level.
