GENEVA, May 14: Switzerland�s attorney general, who is conducting investigations into alleged corruption at FIFA, will be hauled in front of the Swiss parliament�s judicial committee, the body said.

Michael Lauber, the Alpine nation�s top prosecutor, will be quizzed at the committee�s next meeting on May 20.

The committee of lawmakers �then intends to decide on the possible opening of a revocation procedure against him,� it said in a statement.

In Switzerland, the attorney general is chosen by parliamentarians.

Lauber was investigated by the supervisory authority watchdog that oversees his office with regard to his informal meetings with FIFA president Gianni Infantino, the head of world football�s governing body, in 2016 and 2017.

The committee said it had noted the disciplinary decision taken by the watchdog on March 2 to sanction Lauber by cutting his salary.

That investigation found that Lauber committed �very serious breaches� before, but also during the disciplinary proceedings, said the committee.

�These included statements contrary to the truth, violation of the duty of loyalty or obstruction of the disciplinary investigation,� it said. � AFP
