Swiss attorney general quits after Fifa scandal
The most senior lawyer in Switzerland has resigned after a court concluded he had covered up a meeting with Gianni Infantino during a Fifa corruption inquiry. Michael Lauber, the Swiss attorney general and federal prosecutor, denied allegations last June he lied over secret meetings with Infantino, the governing body’s president. However, the supervisory body that oversees his office has now ruled he “seriously violated his official and legal duties”. Lauber had previously clung to his job despite damning reports from a government watchdog. He denied lying over the Infantino meetings, but offered to resign to protect the reputation of his institution.
