FIFA vows to crack down on corruption

MOST COMMENTED

A proposal presented by FIFA’s anti-corruption adviser Mark Pieth has been backed by FIFA President Sepp Blatter and members of the Executive Committee, some of whom have been recently cleared of charges.

Blatter said FIFA would revamp its ethics committee, which had cleared those Executive Committee members, to separate investigating and prosecuting units with new, independent leaders. “Unanimously they agreed to this new approach in our, let’s say, efforts for more transparency and integrity,” Blatter said at a news conference Friday.

FIFA’s reputation has been rocked by claims of bribery and vote-rigging that marred FIFA’s presidential election campaign last year, and the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding contests which were voted on in December 2010.

In his report, Pieth wrote, “FIFA has … shown a lack of pro-active and systematic follow-up on allegations. In some instances, allegations were insufficiently investigated.”
