Eduardo Li

The Swiss Federal Office of Justice has approved the extradition of Eduardo Li, the former president of the Costa Rican Football Federation, to the United States. Li, a Costa Rican citizen, was arrested in Zurich along with six other FIFA officials in a dawn raid on a Zurich hotel on May 27. The U.S. Department of Justice issued an arrest warrant in May against Li, accusing him of taking bribes in connection with the sale of marketing rights for World Cup 2018 qualifying games. He has been in custody pending extradition and now has 30 days to appeal the Swiss decision.
