FIFA ethics probe requests sanctions against Blatter, Platini
Nov 21, Oslo: The independent ethic committee of the world football governing body FIFA has on Saturday requested sanctions against President Sepp Blatter and Vice-president Michel Platini. The committee has been probing corruption allegations against the two officials. Citing privacy and the presumption of innocence, the committee said it would not disclose the nature of the punishments requested against the two men, a report from AFP said. The announcement, however, has prompted an angry response from Paltini's lawyer, who said that FIFA had lost all credibility. The investigatory chamber has said in a statement that its final report contained requests for sanctions against Joseph Blatter and Michel Paltini. The adjudicatory said it will study the findings carefully. Previously, the adjudicatory body had recommended suspensions of several years, or even life.
