Drugs charges against Paris Hilton in South Africa dropped

Drugs charges against Paris Hilton in South Africa dropped

Paris Hilton doesn't concern me much, but the first line of the news story caught me off-guard:

JOHANNESBURG, July 3 (Xinhua) -- Drugs charges against controversial U.S. socialite Paris Hilton were withdrawn in a FIFA World Cup Court in Port Elizabeth, South Africa early on Saturday morning.


Is that misstated, or does FIFA really have its own court system?
