Former FIFA official and bribery suspect Eduardo Li will stay in custody for now, a New York federal judge ruled Wednesday, after federal prosecutors said they were worried that Li could flee to his native Costa Rica.

While Li remains in custody, some of his co-defendants have been granted pretrial release. For example, former Brazilian Football Confederation president Jose Maria Marin was released in November on $15 million bail. After Marin’s release, his attorney Charles A. Stillman of Ballard Spahr LLP said that because of poor economic conditions in Brazil, there had been some unexpected difficulties with a $2 million corporate surety bond that was supposed to back Marin’s release. Prosecutors eventually agreed to have the surety bond replaced with $200,000 in cash, and U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie approved that agreement on Wednesday.
