FIFA and corruption
November 18, 2010
The Federation Internationale de Football Association is preparing to announce the results of an investigation over corruption against two members of the executive committee.
The British newspaper The Sunday Times reported that “Nigerian Amos Adamu and Reynald Temarii, native of Tahiti, were provisionally suspended. Both officials had offered to sell their votes for the election of the 2018 and the 2022 World Cup hosts “.
The two officials deny the charges. The venues will be elected in two weeks.
FIFA ethics committee will also determine if two of the applications, the joint between Spain and Portugal, who aspire to host the World Cup 2018, and Qatar proposal for 2022, broke the rules by agreeing an exchange of votes.
