Ocampo to head FIFA ethics team

NAIROBI, Kenya, 29 – Outgoing International Criminal Court Prosecutor Moreno Ocampo is set to head the new FIFA ethics committee investigations arm.

According to BBC Sport, Ocampo is expected to respond to the appointment next month.

At FIFA he will investigate corruption allegations and breaches of ethics rules.

Ocampo who started investigations into the Kenyan 2008 post election violence is expected to retire next month after nine years of service as ICC Prosecutor.

The renowned prosecutor found his footing into the world sport when he defended Diego Maradona.

Ocampo’s chamber will bring charges, while a separate arm will judge cases.

In March, football’s governing body announced a wide-ranging overhaul of its governance, in light of a series of corruption allegations that have rocked the organization over the last 18 months, concerning both World Cup bidding and the presidential election.

Veteran lawyer Ocampo was appointed as the first chief prosecutor of the ICC in 2003, but is stepping down from his position at The Hague in June.
