Soccer prosecutor Constantinos Simitzoglou on Wednesday brought disciplinary action against PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis who has been at large since Sunday night after storming onto a pitch carrying a gun in a holster. 

The Russian businessman faces a fine for threatening soccer officials and a stadium ban for three to five years. 

The Thessaloniki soccer team also faces penalties ranging from a stadium ban to points deduction and relegation. 

The development came as representatives of FIFA visited Athens in the wake of the latest crisis to rock Greek soccer.
