Default More FIFA woes

As per this morning's CNN Breaking News email:

Quote:
Sepp Blatter's tenure as president of FIFA, world soccer's governing body, suffered a new blow today when the Swiss Attorney General opened criminal proceedings against him on "suspicion of criminal mismanagement."

A statement released by the Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland confirmed it was examining a contract signed by Blatter with the Caribbean Football Union and an alleged "disloyal payment" of $2 million to UEFA President Michel Platini.

Sepp Blatter is quizzed by Swiss prosecutors over criminal mismanagement and making a 'disloyal payment' to UEFA's Michel Platini as criminal proceedings begin against FIFA president
Quote:
Swiss attorney general's office said Blatter was questioned this afternoon
His Zurich offices were raided and data was seized by investigators
He is accused of 'criminal mismanagement or misappropriation' over a TV rights deal signed with former Caribbean football chief Jack Warner in 2005
He is also suspected of 'a disloyal payment' of two million Swiss francs (£1.3 million) to UEFA president Michel Platini
