Swiss court puts Qatari on trial in soccer case next week
Announcing indictments in February, Swiss prosecutors called that “an unspecified ‘amicable agreement’” and instead imposed the incitement charge. That related to Valcke unlawfully enriching himself and not reporting it to FIFA, prosecutors said. The trial has arisen from Swiss prosecutors having access to FIFA business and staff correspondence since being i nvited in by soccer’s world body in November 2014. Russia and Qatar were picked in December 2010 by a FIFA executive committee that was later widely discredited. Still, Swiss prosecutors were criticized for waiting so long to bring the case that a statute of limitations for evidence expired.
