RUSSIA 2018 & QATAR 2022 Former FIFA Officials Accused of…

first_imgFormer FIFA executives took bribes in return for voting for Russia and Qatar to host the World Cup, US prosecutors announced yesterday.In what could be a highly significant twist in the FBI’s long-running investigation into allegations of football corruption, a new indictment was revealed in the US District Court on Monday.The documentsclaim several former FIFA executive committee members “were offered or received bribes in connection with their votes”. The Department of Justice makes allegations against Nicolas Leoz, the former president of South American governing body CONMEBOL, and ex-Brazil federation supremo Ricardo Teixeira.Both are accused of taking money “in exchange for their votes in favour of Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup”.Disgraced former FIFA Vice-president Jack Warner of Trinidad and Tobago was also allegedly paid £4m through a host of offshore shell companies to back Russia’s 2018 bid.Russia beat England to win the right to host the most recent World Cup in 2018. Warner was president of the North and Central American and Caribbean confederation CONCACAF.Another former FIFA ExCo member – Guatemala football chief Rafael Salguero – was allegedly promised a bribe to vote for Russia.Leoz died last year under house arrest in his native Paraguay, having fought extradition to the US. Teixeira has been banned from the game for life by FIFA for taking bribes for marketing and media rights for football competitions between 2006 and 2012.Teixeira and Warner, who is also banned for life, have avoided extradition to the US. Salguero was banned last year, having admitted corruption.Former executives at US television giant 21st Century Fox have also been charged in the indictment with making payments to South American football officials to secure broadcast rights.“The profiteering and bribery in international soccer have been deep-seated and commonly known practices for decades,” said FBI assistant director-in-charge William Sweeney.“The FBI… are investigating the illicit handshakes and backroom deals hidden in the infrastructure of soccer events, venues and marketing contracts.“The first public charges date back to 2015. This should illustrate to everyone still hoping to score millions corruptly, we’re going to find you.”Almost 10 years have now passed since FIFA controversially voted for Russia and Qatar to host the sport’s showpiece tournaments.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgPhilip Adejumo A United States of America-born swimmer, Philip Adejumo, has stated why he dumped his place of birth and residence to pick to represent Nigeria.Adejumo revealed this to BCOS TV’s Boluwaji Ogunmola that he decided to represent Nigeria because he believes he had more to offer Nigeria than to the US.The dark skinned swimmer while featuring on BCOS TV sports programme produced by Adewale Tijani ‘Fans Forum’ added that his decision to don the green – white – green of Nigeria was hinged on his belief that Africa’s most populous country would give him greater opportunities to showcase his talents. ” I opted for Nigeria because I believe that they will give me better chance to compete at the highest level,” Adejumo said on Fans Forum.The swimmer added that he has no regrets about his decision to represent Nigeria.“I was not disappointed.

TTFA lawyers warn bank

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – As the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) continues its fight against FIFA taking over administration of the organization, its ousted president William Wallace has warned First Citizens Bank against changing the signatories on the association’s accounts there. Wallace, through lawyers representing the TTFA in its challenge to FIFA appointing a normalization committee to replace the association’s board, has reportedly written to the bank warning that legal action would be taken if it was discovered that signatories or any other information was changed without the required authorization.“Since the elections held in November 2019, following which Mr William Wallace was duly elected president of the TTFA and subsequent thereto added as a signatory to the accounts, there has been no further change,” the lawyers wrote in an April 17 letter, according to Sports Max.“Any attempts to change the signatories on the account which may have already been made in March or April 2020 or attempts which may be made hereafter without the express approval of Mr William Wallace and/or the duly elected executives is unauthorized. “Should it come to light that the bank has provided any confidential information to, or acted to make any changes in respect to the TTFA accounts…my clients shall without delay approach the High Court or urgent assistance in preventing or stopping any breach or unlawful interference,” it added.A normalization headed by a local businessman was appointed by FIFA to take charge of TTFA’s operations late last month, after an assessment by football’s world governing body and continental body CONCACAF found that “extremely low overall financial management methods, combined with a massive debt” had left the local body “facing a very real risk of insolvency and illiquidity”.The committee, which will have up to two years to carry out its work, has to create a debt repayment plan for the embattled TTFA, review the local governing body’s statutes and ensure their adherence to FIFA regulations, and oversee new elections. But the TTFA is challenging FIFA’s takeover at the Court of Arbitration for Sports in Switzerland.In the correspondence to First Citizens Bank, the TTFA’s lawyers made it clear that as far as they were concerned, FIFA had no standing to touch the association’s bank accounts.“My client would like to believe that in the modern banking context which is set against a backdrop of robust due diligence, no mere letter from a body with no legal standing in Trinidad and Tobago, could usurp the due authority of the TTFA Board of Directors and/or induce the bank to breach its contract with the TTFA,” they wrote. Last week, FIFA insisted that its normalization committee remains the sole authority for football governance here, after Wallace sent a letter to the Trinidad government stating that he and his executive remained the constitutionally elected leaders of the TTFA.last_img read more
