Swiss inquiry

The vote comes two days after seven top officials were held in Zurich in a US fraud inquiry that indicted 14 people.

They are accused of bribery racketeering and money laundering involving tens of millions of dollars since 1991.

The aim of the bribes was to influence the outcome of bids to stage football tournaments such as the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2016 Copa America in the US prosecutors say.

Swiss prosecutors have launched a separate investigation into the bidding process for the World Cup tournaments in 2018 in Russia and 2022 in Qatar.
