Fifa has lodged a criminal complaint against former president Sepp Blatter over the finances of a FIFA museum.
The charge relates to the involvement of Blatter and other former officials in the Fifa museum project in Zurich, Switzerland.
This is just the latest allegation of financial impropriety against 84-year-old Blatter.
He resigned from his post as president in 2015 amid a corruption scandal but has always denied any wrongdoing.
The latest FIFA complaint has been sent to the Zurich prosecutor, alleging the museum project was "deliberately mismanaged".
The documents state that Blatter "repeatedly misled different FIFA bodies as to the cost and viability of the project"
