Prosecutor cleared of misconduct in FIFA case, leaves job

GENEVA (AP) A Swiss prosecutor who led a four-year corruption investigation into FIFA and international soccer officials is out of the job.

Although federal prosecutor Olivier Thormann was cleared of possible misconduct in the FIFA investigation, he has left work, the office of Switzerland's attorney general said Friday.

"Attorney General Michael Lauber and Olivier Thormann have agreed that the latter's employment contract will be terminated," the federal office said in a statement. "This step has been taken following joint discussions and a thorough assessment of the situation."
