FIFA president Gianni Infantino cleared of ethics breaches

FIFA’s ethics committee on Friday cleared president Gianni Infantino of ethics violations after investigating him over his use of private jets, personal expenses, hiring methods and a contract dispute.

“After conducting both preliminary and formal investigation proceedings, the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has decided to conclude its investigations concerning FIFA President Gianni Infantino. It was found that no violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics had been committed”, a statement said.

The statement marked the first time the committee acknowledged the existence of a probe targeting Infantino, who replaced Sepp Blatter in February vowing to crack down on widespread corruption in FIFA.
