During the last Le Championnat fixture between PSG and Bordeaux, Fiorese appeared to dive to win a penalty at the expense of Ulrich Rame, who did not touch his opponent.
In the ensuing melee, Marco Caneira (pictured) jostled with Fiorese, who simulated being hit by the Bordeaux defender, who collected a one-match ban for being sent off.
But after reviewing the video of the incident, the recently formed Ethical National Committee (CNE) has taken up the case and requested the disciplinary committee to act.
The CNE was formed at the start of the season to assist with fair play in Le Championnat and this is their first major contribution with Fiorese to appear before the disciplinary committee on January 16.
Meanwhile, Nice defender Cedric Varrault has been suspended for four matches after his horrific challenge on Strasbourg's Christian Bassila in their recent tussle.
Bassila was also dismissed after reacting to the tackle and has been banned for one game, with one match suspended.
