With an Interview in the "Saturday review" of Radio SRF 1 on its non-logged and partly secretive Meeting with Fifa chief Gianni Infantino, Federal lawyer Michael Lauber did not succeed yesterday in the desired liberation. First, politicians are now calling for his resignation.
Roland Büchel, SVP national councillor and one of the best connoisseurs of the Fifa cases speaks of a "totally far-fetched appearance". A Meeting with the Fifa chief could not forget so easily. Büchel threatened with deselection Lauber, if this point in the summer for re-election without clarity. Büchel: "So it goes. If a Federal Prosecutor Lauber may not show quickly, when, where, and why he has with Mr Infantino hit, it is no longer selectable. I am personally committed to ensuring that as many voices as possible against him." A "Blender" can't stand it in the Federal advocacy .
Also in the court of Commission, which should propose Lauber actually up for re-election, a big doubt wide. Even politicians that have a rating of how the BDP-Vice-President and national councillor Lorenz Hess, the duties of the Federal Prosecutor so far as "good", say: "His explanations are difficult to understand. If during the interviews, the Commission should confirm that the attorney has fraudulently concealed the third Meeting with Infantino aware of, is a threat to his re-election." Other Councillors from the government parties will not want to support Lauber of re-election, to share on request.
Lauber: "I don't remember the Meeting"
In the Interview, Lauber acknowledged yesterday for the first time that there had been a third Meeting with the President of Fifa, Gianni Infantino. At the Meeting itself and the contents he wants to. That he had fraudulently concealed that a third Meeting with Infantino aware of, pointed Lauber, however. "We assume – on the basis of internal documents that we have sighted, such as agenda entries, and SMS that it has been given," said Lauber. "But I don't remember the Meeting."
As a statement, he added that such Meetings for him, "courant normal". And he could remember the other Meetings just because they came in under special circumstances. He could remember the second meeting only because he had to change trains many times and therefore much too late had arrived.
"I can only tell you what I know"
Lauber also raised the question of what is the plausibility, or the Motivation, if it is him, he lie or deny something. "I can only tell you what I know," he said. "I'm not lying. The are allegations. And by the way, I in back," he said. Lauber also referred to the fact that Infantino had "been in any second" party to the Proceedings or accused person.
The court Commission will discuss the Case with Lauber to the summer session now in the course of several meetings, until it makes a recommendation for the election in the summer session. Lorenz Hess speaks, however, in view of the difficult Situation, to postpone the election if necessary.
