Swiss extradite detained FIFA official to the United States

Posted by

One of the seven FIFA officials arrested in Zurich as part of a corruption probe has been extradited to the United States.

Switzerlandโ€™s Federal Office of Justice says the unnamed official, whom it did not identify, was extradited on Wednesday.

Officials said in a statement that he was handed over to three US police officers who accompanied him on the flight to New York.

The official agreed last week to be extradited, unlike six others who are contesting the extradition.
