Special Prosecutor Opens Criminal Case Against FIFA\'s Gianni Infantino 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jul 30, 2020 2:14 pm

A criminal case against FIFA president Gianni Infantino was opened Thursday by a Swiss special prosecutor.

 

The case is connected to a meeting Infantino had with the Swiss attorney general. Attorney general Michael Lauber resigned last week.

The special prosecutor found that possible infractions included abuse of public office, breach of official secrecy, \"assisting offenders\" and \"incitement to these acts,\" the supervisory authority for the office of the attorney general said in its statement, adding other criminal acts and proceedings could also be considered.

I wonder if anyone in FIFA is not corrupt.

FIFA is kind of like the NCAA in that it may have been useful (even necessary) years ago when it was really difficult for people/organizations across the world to effectively communicate, organize & come together for collective competitions. But now a days all of that can be easily organized with the internet & a decent admin staff. No reason to have high paid executives. & I am yet to see any legit justification otherwise.
