02 August 2016
South Africa's soccer boss and Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Danny Jordaan has hired top lawyers to defend himself in the corruption investigation that has shaken football body FIFA.
Jordaan, who hopes to be re-elected as the African National Congress' mayor for Port Elizabeth has employed top Sandton attorney Anthony Norton and senior advocate Gilbert Marcus to engage with authorities in the US on his behalf.
His local lawyers have also enlisted the services of top New York-based law firm Arnold & Porter to assist their client during the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe of FIFA, that has so far seen the arrest of 38 soccer bosses and businessmen since May 2015.
