Swiss prosecutors have indicted FIFA president Sepp Blatter. He is being questioned on suspicion of economic crimes.
The charges are about TV rights sold to former FIFA member Jack Warner for far below the correct value, and something called a "disloyal" payment to the current UEFA president Michel Platini.
Warner sat as president of CONCACAF - the North American and Caribbean Football Association - when an agreement between him and FIFA, signed by Blatter, was signed on 12 September 2005.
Swiss prosecutors write that this agreement was detrimental to FIFA and that it is therefore suspected that Blatter on his own initiative has signed the agreement without the other organs of FIFA being involved.
The payment to Platini, was paid in February 2011. It involves payment for a job done in the period 1999 to 2002. Blatter is suspected of being behind this payment and it is described as "unfair" in the press release from Swiss prosecutors.
The payment is about two million Swiss francs.
The press release further states that Blatter was questioned Friday, after a meeting of FIFA's board. Michel Platini has provided information in the case.
Platini is a presidential candidate in FIFA. The election is next year.
It also stated that police has raided FIFA's headquarters and Blatter's office, where they have seized data.
Jerome Valcke, Blatter's right hand in FIFA, was recently suspended and deprived of all duties under suspicion of corruption.
Blatter should meet the press Friday, but the press conference was canceled after having been postponed by one hour.
