FIFA: Blatter and Platini get 20-month prison sentences


On 15 June 2022, Switzerland’s public prosecutor issued Sepp Blatter (86) and Michel Platini (66) with 20-month suspended prison sentences in connection with accusations of fraud against the football organisation FIFA, reported RTS. Blatter and Platini must be declared guilty of fraud, breach of trust, misappropriation and document forgery, said Thomas Hildbrand the prosecutor. Mr Blatter and Mr Platini were free to choose to follow the law or break it and had opted to break it without valid reason, he said. Sepp Blatter knew well that the payment of two million francs would harm FIFA and enrich Michel Platini, according to Hildbrand. The two men were issued with 20 month suspended sentences.
