FIFA ethics judge Joachim Eckert has formally opened cases against Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini and hopes to give verdicts in December. The FIFA and UEFA presidents, currently suspended for 90 days, face bans of at least several years for alleged financial wrongdoing. The investigations chamber of the FIFA ethics committee said Saturday it submitted final case reports and asked for sanctions against both officials. Details were not given.
The case centers on $2 million of FIFA money Blatter approved for Platini in 2011 as backdated salary. Both deny wrongdoing and say they had a verbal contract to pay Platini for work as Blatter’s presidential adviser from 1998-2002.
