A Swiss parliamentary commission on Wednesday decided to open proceedings that could see the country’s attorney-general dismissed as part of an investigation over a number of alleged secret meetings with FIFA president Gianni Infantino. Head of the Swiss Parliamentary judicial committee Andrea Caroni prior to the hearing The commission voted by 13 votes to four to initiate a case against Michael Lauber. It is “due to a well-founded suspicion of serious violation of the duties of office either intentionally or by gross negligence”, explained the president of the commission, Andrea Caroni. If, at the end of the procedure, the commission finds that the suspicions are confirmed, it will submit a proposal for dismissal to parliament who will decide on the sacking. Otherwise, the procedure will be closed, the commission said in a statement. Lauber came out of the building, where Wednesday’s proceedings were held in private, simply declaring: “It went very well”. According to the report, Lauber, 54, was in charge of matters related to the notorious corruption scandal at FIFA. However, he “violated several duties of office” by meeting Infantino on three occasions in 2016 and 2017.
