"Having examined all of the relevant evidence and based on Miguel Trujillo’s guilty plea before the federal court in New York, the investigatory chamber has opened formal proceedings against Mr Trujillo. As a licensed FIFA match agent, he was bound by the FIFA Code of Ethics," the statement said.
According to the statement, the chamber will investigate payments from Trujillo to several football officials. The probe against the 65-year-old Colombian will reportedly be led by Chairman of the chamber Cornel Borbely.
According to the US Department of Justice, Trujillo has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to high-ranking officials of FIFA, CONCACAF and soccer federations in Central America and the Caribbean as part of the financial schemes involving media and marketing rights and organization of international friendly games.
FIFA has been mired in a corruption scandal since early 2015. The US Justice Department has charged nine FIFA officials and five corporate executives with allegedly receiving some $150 million in bribes.
