Former Cayman Islands Football Official Costas Takkas is attempting to get a separate trial, according to international media reports.

Takkas was involved in the FIFA corruption scandal alongside his former colleague and Cayman’s own Jeffery Web. Takkas is one of eight defendants who have denied the allegations and are due to be tried together in November, but his attorneys and several of the other defendants will be applying for their cases to be severed.

The eight defendants, who have all pleaded not guilty are among the 42 individuals and entities charged so far as a part of the US investigation are in talks with US officials about possibly pleading guilty.

Assistant US Attorney Evan Norris spoke at a hearing in Brooklyn federal court after US District Judge Pamela Chen set the trial date for November 6 2017, for seven former football officials and one former marketing executive.

To date, 16 people and two sports marketing companies have pleaded guilty to charges, including Webb, the former President of the Cayman Islands Football Association and the regional body, CONCACAF, as well as a former FIFA Vice President.
