Switzerland’s federal prosecutor has declared discontinue investigations into World Cup broadcasting transactions between former FIFA president Sepp Blatter’s and the Caribbean Football Union [CFU],John Revill of Reuters has revealed.
Reports of the latest move emerged this Saturday as contained in a statement released by the Swiss persecutor.
“We confirm the Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland..Considers the criminal investigation into the partial facts and allegations concerning the contractual relationship with the CFU to be complete and ready for conclusion,” the statement read.
It also went further as follows OAG “intends to discontinue the proceedings related to the alleged sale to the Caribbean Football Union,”
The Office of the Attorney General has told parties involved that it is discontinuing the case and seeks ways to fully drop the case.
The decision has no impact on other investigation related to other issues.
Blatter had a December to forget in 2015 when the same court ruled that the then World Football chief was not allowed to be involved in the game for at least eight years.
The ban was later reduced to eight years but Blatter never found fairness in the decision.
Last year Blatter made an emotional outing on the issue;
“I am not a thief” and wanted recognition for the successes he had during his 17-year run as the international sports body’s president.
“I’m not going to die about it but I want to die in dignity, and I want them to say I was not a thief in FIFA,” Blatter stated.
The latest development makes this tale more interesting.
Whatever happens Blatter’s six-year ban runs out in December 2022.
The Swiss football administrator spent 41 years in different roles at the World governing body. It will be interesting to see the next move 84-year-old Blatter makes at the end of all this.
