The Swiss Federal Office of Justice (FOJ) has confirmed the two FIFA officials arrested on Thursday morning are Alfredo Hawit, president of CONCACAF, and Juan Angel Napout, president of CONMEBOL.
Both Honduran Hawit and Paraguayan Napout were taken into custody by Swiss police after raids at the Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich following arrest requests made by the United States. Both men are suspected of accepting bribes of millions of dollars.
After hearings with the Zurich cantonal police, the FOJ has announced Hawit and Napout are opposing their extradition to the US.
