MEX­ICO CITY—The head of FIFA’s in­de­pen­dent au­dit com­mit­tee Domenico Scala quit Satur­day in protest at what he called at­tacks on re­forms of the scan­dal­tainted world foot­ball gov­ern­ing body by its lead­er­ship. Scala said he was “con­ster­nated” by a FIFA Coun­cil move to con­trol the nom­i­na­tion of mem­bers of in­de­pen­dent over­sight bod­ies such as its ethics com­mit­tee and au­dit and com­pli­ance com­mit­tee. The Swiss of­fi­cial has played a key role in push­ing through re­forms af­ter the scan­dals that claimed the heads of for­mer FIFA pres­i­dent Sepp Blat­ter and UEFA pres­i­dent Michel Pla­tini.—AFP
