FIFA president Sepp Blatter was relieved of his duties by the FIFA ethics committee last week and has now filed an appeal. According to his American lawyer Richard Cullen, Blatter is “very hopeful” that the suspension will be overturned.
Blatter sent a letter to the German judge in charge of the adjudicatory chamber of the ethics committee. In the letter he complains of the unfair treatment he received and demands a hearing to argue his case in full.
Blatter have strongly denied any wrongdoing.
