Michel Platini Files Lawsuit in FIFA Case

football forum

Recommended Posts

Former UEFA president Michel Platini has filed a lawsuit in France in a bid to prove that former FIFA officials conspired to get him banned from football.

French newspaper Le Monde reported that Platini filed a complaint for "slanderous denunciation" and "criminal conspiracy to commit the offense of slanderous denunciation".

Platini was banned by FIFA in 2015 for financial misconduct in relation to a £1.3 million payment authorised by former FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

In May, Swiss federal prosecutors confirmed he was not being charged in an investigation into possible financial wrongdoing.

Since September 2015, he has had the status of "between a witness and an accused person" in criminal proceedings opened against Blatter.
