The FIFA president said in a statement: “As president of FIFA, it has been my aim from day one, and it remains my aim, to assist the authorities with investigating past wrongdoings at FIFA. FIFA officials have met with prosecutors in other jurisdictions across the world for exactly these purposes.”
FIFA also reiterated a previous statement the president had made on the matter back in June, where he quipped that the whole issue was “absurd”.
“To meet with the attorney general of Switzerland is perfectly legitimate and it’s perfectly legal,” it reads. “It’s no violation of anything. On the contrary, it is also part of the fiduciary duties of the president of FIFA.”
