FIFA publishes report on Russia and Qatar World Cup


Celebrity News: After more than two and a half years, FIFA published the full report of the investigations into the controversial award of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. The document had previously been leaked to the press.

Principal Investigator Michael Garcia’s paper was published Tuesday (27.06.2017) on the website of the International Federation of Associated Football, according to a resolution of the international ethics committee, which met after the newspaper German Bild will announce on Monday that it would publish the report.

According to the FIFA statement, the ethics commission, currently headed by Colombian Maria Claudia Rojas and Greek Vassilios Skouris, was to meet next week to discuss the publication of the report.

“However, in view of the fact that the document has been leaked and has come into the hands of a German newspaper, the new presidents have requested that it be published immediately in its entirety, in order to avoid spreading any kind of disinformation,” According to the agency headed by Swiss Gianni Infantino. “For the sake of transparency, FIFA welcomes the news that this report has finally been published.”

The document was prepared by the American Michael Garcia, who resigned in 2014 from his position as chief investigator of FIFA precisely because at that time the governing body refused to make public the whole content.

The searches contained in the 430 pages of the report detail the infractions of several of those involved in the controversial vote on December 2, 2010, which defined two venues.

According to Bild’s advance, Garcia’s text describes among other things how after the election three members with voting rights of the FIFA Executive Committee traveled in private flight to Rio de Janeiro at the expense of the Qatar Football Federation.

In addition, the paper says the report documents a payment of two million dollars in the account of the then ten-year-old daughter of a FIFA official.

The investigations were then without consequences for the world headquarters of Russia and Qatar. The two organizers have always denied having committed any infractions.

García investigated all postulants and leaders with veto rights, including former soccer player and former coach Franz Beckenbauer and Spanish soccer chief Ángel María Villar, as well as several members of Conmebol (South American Football Confederation).
