FIFA Trial: Blatter, Platinum Cleared Of Fraud Charges

Former FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, and vice-president Michel Platini, have both been cleared of fraud charges following their trial in Switzerland.

The pair stood trial over a payment of 2m Swiss francs (£1.6m) made by Blatter to Platini in 2011.

Both men had denied wrongdoing and said the transfer was belated payment for Platini’s advisory work for FIFA.

On his arrival at the court on Friday, Blatter said: “I am not innocent in my life but in this case I am innocent.”

Blatter, 86, and former UEFA president Platini, 67, were banned from football in 2015 and indicted last November.

Following a case that was opened in 2015, their 11-day trial over the 2011 payment took place at the Federal Criminal Court in Bellinzona and concluded on June 22.
