FIFA – The Head is gone, but not the Headache!
Within just 4 days after getting elected president for a fifth term Sepp Blatter says he’s stepping down.
FIFA is drowned in a massive corruption scandal. U.S. Justice Department has already charged 14 people, which includes nine FIFA officials, in a 47-count indictment last week. “I’m not able to comment further on Mr. Blatter’s status,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch told reporters at the time.
Interpol issued red notices to inform member nations that arrest warrants are out for six of those indicted, including Jack Warner, a former FIFA vice-president and executive committee member.
Blatter wasn’t charged by the Justice Department. That does not mean he is in the clear list as well. Its reported that FBI corruption investigation into FIFA’s President may still continue.
