ZURICH (Reuters) – A member of FIFA’s ethics committee has been suspended after being placed under investigation by an anti-corruption unit in his native Malaysia, the global soccer body said on Wednesday.
FIFA said in a statement that the investigation had been launched by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission against Sundra Rajoo.
It said that “Mr Rajoo will not be involved in any further activities” while the investigation was being carried out.
It did not give further details of the investigation or the accusations against Rajoo, who could not be immediately reached for comment.
FIFA’s ethics committee was set up in 2012 and banned dozens of officials following a corruption scandal in 2015, which also included around 40 soccer officials being indicted in the United States.
Rajoo is a member of the committee’s adjudicatory chamber.
