President of world football governing body – FIFA, Gianni Infantino has accepted to cooperate with the Swiss Special Federal Prosecutor investigating his meetings with Swiss Attorney-General, Michael Lauber.

Michael Lauber allegedly told lies to his supervisor after a secret meeting with the FIFA boss, while he was investigating corruption at the Association.

According to FIFA,  they are ready to cooperate fully with the Swiss authorities.

Infantino said “people remember well where FIFA was as an institution back in 2015, and how substantial judicial intervention was actually required to help restore the credibility of the organization.

“As President of FIFA, it has been my aim from day one, and it remains my aim, to assist the authorities with investigating past wrongdoings at FIFA.”

He said FIFA officials have already met with prosecutors in other jurisdictions across the world in similar matters, adding that people have been convicted and sentenced, thanks to FIFA’s cooperation.

The FIFA Boss made particular mention of the United States of America, where FIFA’s cooperation resulted in over 40 criminal convictions.

“Therefore, I remain fully supportive of the judicial process, and FIFA remains willing to fully cooperate with the Swiss authorities for these purposes,” he said.

Meanwhile, FIFA insists that Infantino’s meeting with the Swiss Attorney-General Michael Lauber was not a violation of anything, saying it was legitimate.
