Swiss probe 53 incidents

Swiss investigators are probing 53 possible money-laundering incidents as part of their investigation into the bids for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups.

Michael Lauber, the Swiss attorney general, told a news conference in Bern that "53 suspicious banking relations" had been uncovered but that the investigation could take years, such is the volume of computer data to be examined. Lauber did not rule out FIFA president Sepp Blatter or secretary general Jerome Valcke being interviewed.
