FIFA and Gianni Infantino welcome the decision of the Swiss Federal Criminal Court to challenge the extraordinary federal prosecutor

FIFA (www.FIFA.com) and FIFA President Gianni Infantino welcome the decision of the Swiss Federal Criminal Court (FCC) to remove Stefan Keller from his duties as extraordinary federal prosecutor.

The FCC has categorically said that Mr. Keller’s bias, as evidenced by his various press releases, repeated procedural errors and systematic denial of rights, cannot guarantee a fair process.

In particular, the FCC said that by attempting to address issues that had nothing to do with his mandate and publicly raising his own personal suspicions about them without any objective justification, Mr. Keller clearly violated the presumption. of innocence and damaged the reputation of the FIFA President, contrary to his personal rights protected by law.

The FCC stressed that for a public prosecutor, the communication of distorting, harmful, misleading and factually incorrect information, as well as simple polemics and propaganda, is clearly inadmissible.

The FCC further noted that each party has the right to have their case decided by an impartial, impartial and unbiased judge, acting in accordance with the principles of fairness and good faith. Given his demeanor, especially with regard to his various media communications, Mr. Keller did not meet even these most basic legal standards.

Taken as a whole, it was felt that Mr Keller was preoccupied with portraying himself in a positive light and engaging in one-sided reporting to the detriment of the FIFA president. The FCC held that, contrary to Mr. Keller’s assertions, it had nothing to do with objective communication that could have been justified in the public interest.

It was in this context that Mr. Keller was dismissed from his post and ordered to pay the President of FIFA 5,000 Swiss francs to cover the costs of the proceedings.

As previously and regularly communicated, FIFA and the FIFA President are fully available to cooperate with the authorities, whether these are meetings that the FIFA President has had with the former Attorney General of Switzerland or anything else.
