Since the 25. September 2015 determined the Federal Prosecutor's office on suspicion of embezzlement, and criminal mismanagement against Sepp Blatter – the 2-million payment to Michel Platini and a Fifa the "unfavorable" TV contract.
Originally, Olivier Thormann, former chief of the economic crime Department at the office of the attorney General (BA), the proceedings against Blatter launched. Last November, he was asked by Federal Prosecutor Michael Lauber. Thor man was accused, among other things, he had to the former chief of the Legal Department of Fifa to a little distance, and as a result, the secrecy hurt. The investigation by a special Prosecutor rebutted the allegations. Thor man did not return to BA.
it was Thor's successor, Thomas Hildbrand determined – a renowned expert in the field of economic crime. Hildbrand was set almost three months ago and, as the NZZ writes on Thursday, not only as leaves in the upper Valais commune Visp grew up with, but should also be a distant Relative of the former President of Fifa. The deceased sister of the Prosecutor, apparently, was married to a Cousin Blatter's comments about. And Hildbrand was also godfather to a son of the married couple.
not to come to the Ruch of nepotism, has submitted Sepp Blatter against the establishment of Hildbrands a recusal request. According to the NZZ, the request will be justified due to the bias mainly preventive.
Should be set to the criminal proceedings against Blatter, would collect the media will inevitably be the allegation that he had been treated because of the connection to the process Manager in the office of the attorney General preferred, explained Blatter's comments about a lawyer Lorenz Erni of the implementation of the legal step.
And Vice versa, you could argue that Hildbrand arise for the same reasons, the charges against Blatter, in order not to be suspected of nepotism to suspend. One way or the appearance of bias is, according to Erni, at least, which is why the state's attorney Hildbrand as the Director of Proceedings should be rejected.
The BA is not but according to the NZZ With the commitment of Thomas Hildbrand would be taken of the requirement of Acceleration, such as the legislature provides.
