In the wake of the ongoing corruption probe regarding FIFA, the Swiss Federal Office of Justice last week extradited former FIFA vice president, Jeffrey Webb to the United States after 50 days of detention. Click here if you missed it!
On Saturday , the ex FIFA chief has pleaded not guilty in a US court in connection with the massive international corruption scandal, and his release was set at a $10 million bond, according to Yahoo News.
The 50-year-old dual British and Cayman Islands citizen has surrendered his passports to the FBI and must remain within a 20-mile (32-kilometer) radius of the courthouse in Brooklyn.
He is reportedly the only one of seven FIFA officials arrested in Zurich that did not contest extradition and was flown earlier this week to the United States, where he lives with his wife and their young son.
His physician wife, a US citizen, her pensioner grandmother and his in-laws signed his bond papers in court. Six other members of Webb’s extended family will also sign his bond application.
