FIFA court opens case against Blatter, Platini decision in December


LAUSANNE: The judgement arm of FIFA’s ethics committee on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) opened a case against the body’s suspended president Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, with a verdict in the corruption allegations surrounding both men due next month. The panel of judges, known as the adjudicatory chamber, received the final report from the ethics committee’s investigative branch on Saturday, which called for sanctions to be levelled against both men. A guilty verdict would almost certainly crush UEFA president Platini’s hopes of succeeding Blatter at the top of world football’s governing body.
