BREAKING: Swiss prosecutors launch probe against FIFA chief, Infantino

FIFA President Infantino to speak to 'racially-abused' Muntari

Swiss Prosecutors have launched a probe against Gianni Infantino, the president of the world football governing body, FIFA.

According to reports, it is in relation to an alleged secret meeting the head of world football’s governing body held with the Swiss attorney general Michael Lauber.

Lauber last week offered to resign after a court said he covered up the meeting and lied to supervisors during an investigation by his office into corruption surrounding Fifa.

Special prosecutor Stefan Keller was appointed last month to review criminal complaints against the two men and others.

He found indications of criminal conduct related to their meetings, the authority overseeing the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) said.

“This concerns abuse of public office, breach of official secrecy, assisting offenders and incitement to these acts,” reads a statement.

Both Infantino and Lauber have denied any wrongdoing.
