Two FIFA employees were arrested at dawn at the luxurious Baur au Lac Hotel in Zurich on suspicion of accepting millions of dollars in bribes.
Police raided the luxury hotel, where several FIFA officials were arrested in May.
A two-day meeting of the FIFA Executive Committee is being held in Zurich, Switzerland, to vote on the reforms.
“FIFA found out about the actions taken today by the US Department of Justice,” said the world governing body of football.
“FIFA will continue to cooperate fully with the investigation in the United States, as permitted by Swiss law, as well as with the investigation led by the Swiss prosecutor’s office.
“FIFA will have no further comments on today’s developments.”
In May, seven FIFA officials, including two vice presidents, were arrested at the same hotel at the request of a U.S. corruption probe as the organization was engulfed in allegations of widespread wrongdoing.
The Swiss Federal Office of Justice (FoJ) said the two arrested overnight allegedly took money to sell marketing rights in connection with football tournaments in Latin America, as well as World Cup qualifiers.
“Two more FIFA officials were arrested today in Zurich,” said the Swiss FoJ on December 3rd.
“They have been detained pending extradition [to the US]. According to US arrest requests, they are suspected of receiving bribes of millions of dollars. ”
Swiss officials said they would announce the names of the two detainees and the results of the hearings later on Thursday (December 3rd).
A Swiss criminal investigation into the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids was also launched earlier this year, along with the US investigation.
