Swiss Authorities Commence Legal Proceedings Against FIFA President

Swiss authorities began criminal proceedings today against FIFA President, Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, the two most powerful figures in world football. The Swiss are investigating whether Blatter made an illegal two million dollar payment. The office of the Swiss Attorney general says that the investigation is on suspicion of criminal mismanagement…and -– alternatively – misappropriation. Blatter has been questioned and his office has been searched and data seized. The investigation also includes Jack Warner, the Trinidadian national and former vice president of FIFA who is fighting extradition to the United States.   The Swiss attorney general claims Blatter made an unfavourable deal to FIFA with the Caribbean Football Union, which Warner used as his power base. Here is a report from the BBC.
