Of the 14 people indicted by the United States in the FIFA corruption case, five members are businessmen that worked for various sports marketing and consulting companies that dealt extensively with the world's football organization.
Although most are attempting to delay their extradition to the United States, Alejandro Burzaco chose to turn himself in.
Burzaco is the president of Torneos y Competencias, a sports marketing company in Argentina. After the U.S. indictment alleged he received kickbacks for signing lucrative broadcasting deals for the Copa America tournaments, Burzaco was unable to be found.
Italian police official Giuseppe Tricarico says Burzaco was being searched for around the world with little luck. Burzaco saved Interpol the hassle of locating him by turning himself in to Italian police on Tuesday morning.
Burzaco attended a hearing Tuesday afternoon to confirm the arrest, following procedure in the Italian judicial system.
