Teixeira was president of the Brazilian Football Confederation from 1989 until 2012, and headed the local organizing committee for the FIFA 2014 World Cup from 2009 and 2012.
Teixeira was previously involved in a corruption investigation after he was named a beneficiary from bribes traced to a Swiss marketing company in 2012.
The indictment comes following a high-profile football corruption scandal involving FIFA. On May 27, several high-ranking football officials, most holding senior roles in the football governing body, were arrested in Switzerland on a US federal corruption warrant, accused of fraud, racketeering and money laundering.
On the same day, Switzerland opened a criminal investigation into alleged misdemeanors during the allocation process of FIFA World Cups of 2018 and 2022, to Russia and Qatar respectively.
