US expects more FIFA suspects in court soon


NEW YORK: The US government expects additional defendants to appear before a federal judge within weeks or months in connection with the FIFA corruption scandal, a New York court heard Friday. Assistant attorney Evan Norris made the remark during a brief pre-trial hearing attended by Argentine sports marketing executive Alejandro Burzaco, who has already surrendered to US authorities in the case. The FIFA scandal, in which US authorities accuse officials of soliciting and receiving more than $150 million bribes and kickbacks over two decades, has scandalized world soccer.
