Caribbean Countries May Face Investigation in FIFA Bribery Scandal

July 26, 2011

It is reported that up to 15 representatives of Caribbean countries could now face investigation as part of the explosive bribery scandal that has seen the life-suspension of Asian soccer chief Mohamed Bin Hammam at the weekend. 

FIFA’s secretariat may be asked by its Ethics Committee to open a flurry of new cases connected with the scandal.

Namibian judge Petrus Damaseb, who chaired the hearing of Bin Hammam’s case, revealed that “in the light of evidence disclosed” the Committee would request a further probe “into the conduct of others” who attended the infamous May 10-11 meeting in Trinidad where the bribes were allegedly offered.
