Mon 23rd Nov 2015 | FIFA
The adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s independent Ethics Committee chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert has today opened formal adjudicatory proceedings against Joseph S. Blatter and Michel Platini based on the final reports submitted by the investigatory chamber.
The final report regarding Blatter was submitted by Robert Torres and the report regarding Michel Platini was submitted by Vanessa Allar on Saturday (21st Nov).
In a statement released today (23rd) the adjudicatory chamber said it had “studied the reports carefully and decided to institute formal proceedings against the two officials.”
Both Blatter and Platini are currently serving 90 day bans while an investigation over a payment of £1.35m is undertaken.
The adjudicatory chamber intends to come to a decision in both cases during the month of December.
