ZURICH: #FIFA #AcePostUpdate Court Denies Bail for Officials ‘

#AcePostUpdate – #FIFA June.26: One of the seven soccer officials arrested in Zurich on May 27 has had a request for bail rejected, a Swiss court said on Friday.

The arguments put forward in support of his release, “such as his advanced age and poor state of health, were not regarded as sufficient to counter the risk of absconding,” the Federal Criminal Court statement said. It described the defendant as a “FIFA official” without naming him, Reuters reported.

The arrests followed an extradition request from the US.
