GENEVA: Switzerland on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) handed over an initial package of bank documents to US prosecutors requested by Washington as evidence in the ongoing criminal cases targeting senior FIFA leadership. The material “relates to bank accounts allegedly used for bribes connected with the grant of marketing rights to soccer tournaments in Latin America and the USA”, a statement from the Swiss attorney general’s office (FOJ) said. The US justice department asked for documents related to about 50 accounts at 10 different banks, with the FOJ reviewing various requests to assess their relevance to the US prosecutions.
