Criminal proceedings launched against FIFA president

Jul 31, 2020 11:49 IST

A criminal case against FIFA president Gianni Infantino was opened on Thursday by a Swiss special prosecutor relating to dealings with the country's attorney general Michael Lauber. Lauber last week offered to resign after a court concluded that he covered up a meeting with Infantino and lied to supervisors while his office investigated alleged corruption relating to FIFA. Denying any wrongdoing in relation to the  allegations, the head of world football's governing body Infantino said that he remains fully supportive of the judicial process, and FIFA remains willing to fully cooperate with the Swiss authorities for these purposes.
