In­fantino fac­ing a fresh ethics com­plaint: re­port

The Phnom Penh Post - - FOOTBALL -

A NEW York Uni­ver­sity pro­fes­sor who re­signed from a FIFA com­mit­tee has filed an ethics com­plaint against the foot­ball body’s lead­er­ship, the NewYork Times re­ported on Wed­nes­day. Ac­cord­ing to the news­pa­per, the com­plaint lodged by Joseph Weiler claims that FIFA President Gianni In­fantino, In­fantino’s top deputy and other se­nior of­fi­cials in­ter­vened in their com­mit­tee’s work in a bid to block scru­tiny of se­nior of­fi­cials. The re­port came on the same day that Miguel Maduro, the for­mer chair­man of FIFA’s gov­er­nance com­mit­tee, gave a dev­as­tat­ing in­dict­ment be­fore a Bri­tish par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee of In­fantino’s com­mit­ment to re­form. Maduro said the FIFA lead­er­ship in­ter­fered with his com­mit­tee’s work, ig­nored rules and sacked him in or­der to main­tain power, say­ing only “ex­ter­nal pres­sure” would force the cor­rup­tion-tainted or­gan­i­sa­tion to change.
