FIFA suspends Sepp Blatter for 90 days

FIFA ethics committee has suspended its president Sepp Blatter for 90 days.
Head of the committee, Klaus Stoehlker, says the committee made the ruling pending further investigations by the Swiss attorney general following accusations of corruption.

The announcement comes just hours after Blatter criticized the criminal investigation against him in Switzerland, describing it as “outrageous”.

Last month, the Swiss attorney general announced that Blatter will face charges of “criminal mismanagement” and “misappropriation.” Among the charges is an allegation that Blatter gave a “disloyal payment” to UEFA president Michel Platini totalling 2 million francs ($2.1 million). That payment is alleged to have been made three months before Platini announced he would not run against Blatter in the 2011 FIFA presidential election.
