Fifa ethics committee drops Infantino case: Official

Filed on August 19, 2020
Infantino has been in charge of world football's governing body since 2016.

Fifa's ethics committee on Wednesday decided to close a case against president Gianni Infantino over possible ethics violations following a preliminary investigation by its investigatory chamber.

"After examining the relevant documentation and evidence, the chairperson of the investigatory chamber has decided to file the complaint and close the case due to the evident lack of a prima facie case regarding any alleged breach of the Fifa Code of Ethics," Fifa said a statement.

Infantino, in charge of world football's governing body since 2016, was the subject of an investigation by the Swiss prosecutor over suspected collusion between him and Swiss Attorney General Michael Lauber, who resigned last month over his handling of a corruption investigation targeting Fifa

However, Infantino insisted he had "nothing to hide".
