FIFA’s former Vice President Jeffrey Webb appeared in court in New York on Saturday in connection with the huge scandal surrounding soccer’s world governing body.

Webb, one of seven high-ranking football officials arrested in Switzerland on corruption charges in May, pleaded not guilty.

Extradited to the United States, Webb faces charges of racketeering, conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering.

The New York judge released him from custody on 10 million dollars bail but he has been placed under house arrest.

Under the terms of his release, the 50-year-old Cayman Islands national
surrendered his three passports.

He will be under house detention and must remain within 32 kilometres of the courthouse. His movements will be monitored electronically and he will be required to seek written permission from the FBI to go anywhere.
