Swiss attorney general recused from FIFA investigation

GENEVA (AP) Switzerland's federal criminal court says it recused attorney general Michael Lauber from overseeing a sweeping criminal investigation of FIFA officials.

The federal court says it upheld requests by two claimants it did not identify to remove Lauber from the case because of undeclared meetings with FIFA president Gianni Infantino.

Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who has been a criminal suspect since September 2015 but never charged, tells The Associated Press he has "part of my trust and confidence in the Swiss justice back."
