Acquittal across the board: Ex-Fifa President Joseph Blatter celebrated his victory before the Federal Criminal Court in Bellinzona last summer.

As long as the question of recusal has not been clarified, there is no point in continuing the proceedings, writes the Appeals Chamber in a decision published on Monday, which was made on December 12, 2022.

If the proceedings were continued, this could lead to certain actions having to be repeated later, which speaks against procedural economy.
