Michel Platini was quizzed by Swiss court officials on Wednesday over why UEFA has not yet implemented a ruling ordering Sion's reinstatement to the Europa League.
Platini, the president of European football's governing body, spent around two hours at the prosecutor's office in the canton of Vaud. He was followed by general secretary Gianni Infantino. "The president is really happy to have answered questions from the prosecutor as a witness," UEFA spokesman Alexandre Fourtoy said.
