Swiss authorities opened criminal proceedings against Joseph "Sepp" Blatter, the president of soccer's governing body.

Blatter, who's led the Zurich-based organization for 17 year, is accused of criminal mismanagement and misappropriation, the Swiss attorney general said Friday in a statement.

The 79-year-old Swiss citizen is accused of signing a contract with Caribbean soccer officials "that was unfavorable for FIFA" in 2005, as well as making a "disloyal payment" of 2 million Swiss francs ($2 million) to European soccer head Michel Platini, the candidate expected to replace Blatter when he steps down next year.

Prosecutors said they searched FIFA's headquarters today.
