At the end Michael Lauber in the room where the political interrogations Commission, room 286, Federal house, the second floor had begun. For the third Time in six days, the top Swiss criminal hunters, had to answer yesterday afternoon, the nagging questions: How exactly is the informal Meeting between him and the President of Fifa, Gianni Infantino because it was expired. If he could not really remember.
According to the control committees (CC) in part - and full occupation of the court Commission was now of the series. For the third Time, Lauber was passionate, defended himself against his critics, Hanspeter Uster, the President of the Supervisory authority of the office of the attorney General (BA). And he was saying to not move his election. By analogy he gave to understand that last week agreed to the disciplinary investigation of the AB-BA will promote no wrongdoing to light.
Lauber is not penetrated. The Commission unanimously decided to postpone the recommendation for re-election in the autumn session. In this "overheated" Phase if you wanted to meet a decision, said national councillor Matthias Aebischer (SP, BE) in front of the media.

The BA is supposed to until the next meeting on the 28. August an interim report on the disciplinary investigation to submit to. The Federal Prosecutor's office said that it had taken the decision to regard and cooperate with the supervision.
More was not officially know. Unofficially, Commission members say, Lauber enjoy in General much credit – but it was hardly understandable, that he would forget a Meeting with the Fifa President just like that. "There have shaken to the meeting some of the head," says a Person involved.
conversations with politicians from all the political bodies that were in the last days active: Lauber restraint is great. But the Concerns of the parliamentarians to go beyond the case in Fifa. The Central point is the relationship between the Federal Prosecutor and AB-BA, which has deteriorated significantly.
This has a lot to do with the new AB-BA-President: Hanspeter Uster, Ex-justice, Director of the Canton of Zug, Green. His relationship to Lauber, was at the latest on 25. March 2019 disturbed, such as a report of the BA shows, which is this newspaper. At a working meeting type Lauber informed, except for the AB-BA "understandable" that the Federal Prosecutor President Gianni Infantino recall the third informal Meeting with Fifa. The supervision have a doubt that is why "" the information provided by Lauber. What, in turn, the Federal lawyer, the impression left behind that have AB-BA no trust in his Person. "The Federal Prosecutor left the meeting with the type, without his point of view in a Single display", it says in the report.
type-represents itself as the supervision of the President, the interference is stronger than its predecessor, Niklaus Oberholzer. "The Change in presidency has brought a paradigm shift in the supervision. This is the reason for the dispute," says the Bernese Council of States, Hans Stöckli, President of the competent GPK-sub-Committee. It is the conflict not only to the Fifa complex – "it goes deeper". This is also why the two GPK with the BA and AB-BA want to perform an inspection.
Usters occurs not in the political bodies. Several sources say that the usually sober lawyer would have to leave during the Hearings of the last few days emotional, some thin-skinned impression. Also Usters attack on Lauber's credibility caused criticism. Hans Stöckli, said: "of Course, it is difficult to understand how someone can not remember such a Meeting. That gives us no right to say that he lied."
as of the SP-man it looks the majority of parliamentarians, the Lauber hear talk in the last few days in room 286: You have to wonder, how can it be that he (and the three other participants) Meet at the ominous third. Therefore, the staff of the Federal Prosecutor to break? That would be going too far. Choose it right now? That would be going too fast. (Tages-Anzeiger)
