(TODAY NICARAGUA) Among the FIFA executives arrested on Wednesday in Switzerland for alleged corruption is Nicaragua’s Julio Rocha.

Rocha, 64, is currently a development officer with FIFA, tasked with introducing new football projects around the world, headed Federación Nicaragüense de Fútbol (FENIFUT) for nearly 25 years and has acted as the president of the Central American Football Union (UNCAF).

He also served as the head of Nicaragua’s Olympic committee, and took the team to the 2008 Games in Beijing.

Late last year, Rocha denied meeting a company whose head was imprisoned for trying to fix games in central America.

The company paid for Nicaragua’s under-20 football team to travel to a tournament.

FENIFUT spokesperson Moises Avalos said the federation distances itself from any kind of link to the FIFA scandal, which led to the arrest of 14 renowned world football leaders in Zurich on Wednesday morning, Xinhua said.
