Swiss lawyer named as FIFA reform chief


PARIS: FIFA appointed Swiss lawyer Francois Carrard, who helped restore the Olympic movement’s credibility after the Salt Lake City scandal, to lead the world football governing body’s Reform Committee. Carrard, 77, previously guided the International Olympic Committee through its own governance reforms in the wake of the bribery scandal-hit Winter Olympics of 2002. FIFA is currently reeling from its own corruption turmoil after seven football officials were arrested in a raid on a Zurich hotel on the eve of a FIFA congress in May.
