Swiss Court Rejects Platini’s Appeal, Upholds Four-Year Ban

BERN, Switzerland – Switzerland’s supreme court rejected on Thursday the appeal of former UEFA president Michel Platini, against a four-year ban for financial wrongdoing.

Initially, FIFA banned him for eight years for breaching its code of ethics as he accepted payment of 1.8 million euro ($2.06 million) in 2011 in backdated salary for work as former FIFA president Sepp Blatter’s presidential adviser from 1998-2002.

However, the FIFA appeal committee reduced it to six years before the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) reduced it to four years.

The Swiss court considered that the decision by CAS, which prevented him from running for FIFA president in February 2016, was not excessive, according to local media.

Platini, who was in charge of UEFA from 2007, was also a consultant to former FIFA president, Swiss Joseph Blatter, who has been banned for six years.
