Saudi Arabia have banned a referee for life for a match-fixing attempt, weeks before he had been due to fly to Russian Federation to officiate at the football World Cup.
SAFF has already banned Al Mirdasi for life after he asked for bribe to influence the outcome of a match.
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.
Al Mirdasi was taken into police custody where he confessed to soliciting the corrupt payment, the statement from the SAFF ethics committee said.
"FIFA has requested more information from the SAFF before making any further comments".
Al Mirdasi, who is still on the list of officials heading to Russian Federation for the World Cup, confessed to offering to fix the match between Al-Ittihad and Al-Faisaly in Saudi Arabia.
'He confirmed that he had evidence which highlights Al Mirdasi offering help for money.
'After the president of Ittihad club presented what was in his possession to the Federation of Football, the Saudi Federation sent this conversation to the Chairman of the General Directorate of Sport, who in turn informed the competent authorities in all details.
Mirdasi confessed to the charges, according to the statement, and it was decided "to deprive him from participating in any football activity for life".
In an embarrassing and untimely blow to both Federation Internationale de Football Association and the Saudis, Fahad Al Mirdasi, one of Asia's most experienced officials, will be conspicuous by his absence in Russia after being placed under investigation in Saudi Arabia as soon as he was removed from handling last weekend's Saudi cup final.
