FIFA’s independent ethics investigator resigned Wednesday over the handling of his 18-month investigation and subsequent report on the controversial bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Michael Garcia, an American lawyer, issued a statement citing his loss of confidence in the ethics committee’s independence after FIFA issued a 42-page summary of his 430-page report. Garcia called the summary “erroneous” and filed a failed appeal. “No independent governance committee, investigator, or arbitration panel can change the culture of an organization,” he wrote.

#Genève:Ex-ambassadeur condamné pr avoir exploité employée (300 $/mois, 18h/jour,1 jour congé)#esclavagemoderne

Nourrie, logée, A. était payée 300 dollars par mois. Ses horaires, selon le Ministère public? De 6 h à minuit la semaine et de 11 h à 15 h le samedi. A cause de ce tarif illégal, un ex-ambassadeur asiatique, détenteur d’une fortune d’un million de dollars, a été condamné mercredi par la justice pénale pour usure. «C’est une victoire historique», confirme Me Pierre Bayenet, avocat de l’employée exploitée. De guerre lasse, cette femme de ménage a quitté la Suisse il y a plusieurs années. Elle obtient gain de cause sur le plan pénal, dix ans après le dépôt de sa plainte. Et pour cause, le prévenu, qui a quitté ses fonctions il y a quelques années, a bénéficié jusqu’alors de l’immunité diplomatique. «Je n’ai pas imposé le salaire, a déclaré l’accusé devant le Tribunal de police. C’était un accord avec A. J’ai commis une erreur.»La plaignante est arrivée en Suisse en 2004. Son travail débute en se...
