Fahad Al Mirdasi was due to fly to Russia in the coming weeks but Saudi Arabia's soccer federation (SAFF) said on Wednesday that he had been suspended after it emerged he had offered to fix a match last weekend.

Following the SAFF's sanction, Al Mirdasi is now forbidden from participating in any football-related activity for the rest of his life.

Prosecutors: 10 "tortured" kids waterboarded, shot with crossbow
State prosecutors said the children were subjected to waterboarding, shot with crossbows and had scalding water poured on them. There was also spoiled food on the floor and feces-both animal and human-throughout the house, making some areas impassable.

"FIFA has requested more information from the SAFF before making any further comments".

Al Mirdasi was dropped from refereeing Saturday's King's Cup final after an investigation was opened.

Al Mirdasi, one of 36 officials selected by Federation Internationale de Football Association for Russia, took part in last year's Confederations Cup, the traditional World Cup warm-up tournament, overseeing the third-place game between Mexico and Portugal where two penalties were awarded, two players were sent off in extra time and Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio was also dismissed. This was also disclosed by the Disciplinary and Ethics committee.

The 32-year-old referee made the approach to Al Ittihad chief Hamad Al-Senaie, who immediately handed over the WhatsApp messages to SAFF officials who in turn alerted the relevant government authorities, SAFF said. "He asked for an illegal sum of money in exchange for helping his team win the game", it said.

A Saudi referee who is due to officiate at this summer's World Cup in Russia has been banned for life by the Saudi Football Federation following after reportedly admitting to bribery. He also also officiated in the 2016 Olympic Games.

He was then pulled from the game with an investigation into the referee by the ethics committee.
