A Swiss prosecutor investigating corruption in football met in secret with Fifa president Gianni Infantino, German and Swiss media alleged Friday (April 17), further fuelling allegations of collusion between football’s world governing body and Swiss investigators.
Citing unnamed sources, German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) and Switzerland’s Luzerner Zeitung suggested that Cedric Remund, 38, was the previously unidentified fifth person at a secret meeting with Infantino and Swiss Attorney General Michael Lauber at the Schweizerhof Hotel in Bern on June 16, 2017.
If proven, the allegation could potentially compromise a number of high-profile football corruption probes of which Remund was directly in charge, claimed SZ.
