Former FIFA President Joseph Blatter before the Swiss Attorney General on charges of financial corruption
Because of his accusation in corruption cases, the FIFA Ethics Committee issued in 2015 to arrest former President Joseph Blatter for practicing any football activity for eight years.
On Saturday 13 June 2020, the Associated Press reported that the Swiss Prosecutor has opened a new investigation for the former President of “FIFA” Swiss Joseph Blatter, 84, on charges dating back to the era in which he was at the head of “FIFA” since 2010 and the charges are to grant “FIFA” A loan to Trinidad and Tobago Football Association on April 10, 2010 without interest. The loan will be deducted later as a gift from the “FIFA” account. He also accused the former president of selling broadcasting rights for the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup editions for $ 600,000, which is less than the value owed to the deal.
