FIFA stands by Infantino despite criminal proceedings

first_imgWorld football governing body, FIFA, is standing like a rock behind its president Gianni Infantino despite criminal proceedings already launched against him. According to FIFA  there “was and is absolutely no reason to open an investigation” after criminal proceedings against Infantino were launched in Switzerland earlier this week. The proceedings followed an investigation by a special federal public prosecutor, Stefan Keller, into complaints about meetings in 2016 and 2017 involving Infantino, attorney general Michael Lauber and the chief public prosecutor for the Upper Valais region, Rinaldo Arnold. Keller has concluded there are “indications of criminal conduct” in connection with those meetings. Infantino and FIFA have said they will co-operate fully with the investigation, with Infantino insisting he was trying to assist Lauber with the attorney general’s investigation into historic corruption. Nothing remotely criminal has happened and there is nothing at all to suggest any form of criminal wrongdoing. In June, when asked about the meetings with Lauber, Infantino had said: “To meet with the attorney general of Switzerland is perfectly legitimate and it’s perfectly legal.” In a statement released on Sunday, FIFA said of Keller’s opening of proceedings: “There was and is absolutely no reason to open any investigation because nothing remotely criminal has happened and there is nothing at all to suggest any form of criminal wrongdoing.” Promoted Content6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesThe Top 9 Oddest Underwater Discoveries No One Can Explain2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo11 Greatest Special Effects Movies Of All Time6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonThe Most Exciting Cities In The World To VisitThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them FIFA stressed that meeting a prosecutor was not illegal and that it was “entirely logical for the FIFA president to be meeting the Swiss federal prosecutor” at that time given the Office of the Swiss attorney general was conducting investigations in over 20 cases in FIFA-related matters. Infantino attended the meetings “to offer FIFA’s full support in the investigations”, with it being “part of his fiduciary duties” to be there, and FIFA was “trying to restore trust in the institution at that time”, the statement said, adding that the meetings had not been held in secret. FIFA said Keller has “presented no serious elements or legal basis for the opening of any investigation and lacks any detail as to the substance of the case”. And the governing body added: “For the record, FIFA and the FIFA president categorically deny any implication or suggestion that the FIFA president would ever have attempted to exert any form of improper influence on the Swiss federal prosecutor.” read also:FIFA hails Osimhen for breaking African transfer record It was noted that the meetings had already been investigated by another special prosecutor, in an investigation concerning Arnold which was closed with no charges being brought. And the statement said that this investigation had been opened “basically because some anonymous complaints were filed in the canton of Bern”, which have “caused considerable damage to FIFA and to its president Gianni Infantino, despite the fact that they have no merit whatsoever”. It concluded: “The FIFA president will continue to fully assume his functions within FIFA and fulfill his duties and will continue to cooperate with the authorities in Switzerland and around the world.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Loading… last_img read more

USC school to work with military kids

first_imgThe USC School of Social Work, in conjunction with the Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans and Military Families, has begun using a $7.6 million four-year grant it received in July.The school will send 30 Master of Social Work interns to eight local school districts to work with military families and discover ways to address the issues related to deployed parents.“The kids [at the schools] run into all sorts of trouble in regards to graduating on time. It creates such a negative feeling,” USC professor of social work Ron Astor said.These USC students will primarily work with school districts near military bases where more than 10,000 students — or 10 percent of the school population — are from military families.The four-year project intends to help the 149 public schools in the USC area become more supportive environments for children whose parents typically have been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.“First thing we’re working on is the data on what is the issue that the kids are reporting as the biggest issue in their school,” Astor said.All of the funding going toward this project comes from a grant from the Department of Defense Education Activity.Astor, the principal investigator, will work with co-principal investigators Anthony Hassan, director of CIR, Marleen Wong, clinical professor of social work, and Rami Benbenishty, a professor at Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv, Israel.Although only 30 students are currently involved, organizers anticipate increasing the number next year and partnering with San Diego State University and UC San Diego to reach more schools in the future.Districts around San Diego have one of the highest percentages of students from military families.According to Astor, the students have typically gone to “nine to 10 schools” throughout their K-12 education, which can create social and academic issues. At times teachers can be unaware of the causes of these problems and make things harder on the child.“When children go to civilian schools, outside of the post, camp, there seems to be a lack of awareness of the school systems to meet the needs of these children,” Hassan said.last_img read more
