FIFA probe demands sanctions for Blatter and Platini

Baku, November 21, AZERTAC

FIFA's ethics committee says it completed its investigation into the conduct of FIFA President Sepp Blatter and UEFA head Michel Platini and requested sanctions against both of them, according to Al Jazeera.

The report was submitted to FIFA's ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert for a final decision, a statement from the organisation said Saturday.

Both Blatter and Platini, who had been a favourite to win February's FIFA presidential election, have been suspended for 90 days pending the final investigation.

The men face much longer bans if FIFA adopts the recommendation of the committee, which, in Platini's case, would mean he also loses his position as UEFA president.

"For reasons linked to privacy rights and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, the chamber will not publish details of the concluded reports and the requested sanctions against the two officials," the statement said.
