The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has issued immediate life-time bans for 19 officials.The sanctions are for violating SLFA and Fifa statutes concerning taking football related cases to civil courts.
.
The group went to court last month to seek an injunction to stop the current executive running the SLFA.

.
In July Fifa indefinitely postponed the SLFA congress and elections while integrity checks on candidates were carried out.
.
Among those banned is Sanusi Bruski Kargbo, who had declared his intention to run against Isha Johansen in the next SLFA elections.
.
On Thursday the country's Anti-Corruption Commission indicted Johansen and SLFA secretary general Chris Kamara on six charges of abuse of office and public funds.
.
Both Johansen and Kamara have denied any wrongdoing.
.
The term of office of the current SLFA led by Johansen, came to an end on 3 August.
.
A delegation from Fifa is due in Freetown next week to try and resolve issues at the SLFA relating to integrity checks and a match-fixing inquiry.
.
Fifa took the decision based on recommendations by its member associations committee of which the President of the SLFA, Isha Johansen is a member.
