The Ex-FIFA Vice President has been Placed Under House Arrest

The former FIFA vice president, Alfredo Hawit, charged with corruption, has been placed under the United States house arrest on Tuesday after posting $1m bail.
The 64-year-old was extradited to the United States from Switzerland last month following his arrest on December 3 for 12 charges including racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering. He posted his $1m in bail at a Brooklyn court, of which he paid $50,000 in cash with the rest was guaranteed with property.
US prosecutors allege that Hawit accepted and laundered hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes as general secretary of the Honduran football federation between 2008 and 2014.
