Federal prosecutors to hold news conference on FIFA corruption cases
The news conference will take place in Zurich, the site of FIFA headquarters.
During the news conference, federal prosecutors will discuss “the status of the two criminal proceedings,” Swiss officials said in a statement.
On May 27, seven FIFA officials were arrested and indicted on corruption charges. Fourteen officials were charged when a 47-count U.S. indictment was unsealed in a federal court in Brooklyn that day. This indictment detailed charges of bribery, fraud and money laundering.
The same day, Swiss authorities announced their investigation of alleged money laundering during the last two World Cup bids, Russia in 2018 and Qatar in 2022.
