FIFA submits 1300 pages corruption report to Swiss authorities

FIFA has submitted a 1300-page report to the Swiss authorities concluding the 22-month long inquiry into the infamous corruption and bribery allegations that shook the football world in 2015.

FIFA claimed that over 2.5 million documents were scrutinised for that purpose and the sent document comprised of over 2000 pages of ‘exhibits’ or documentations.

The president Gianni Infantino spoke, “FIFA will now return its focus to the game, for fans and players throughout the world.”

However, FIFA has receded from divulging things further, remarking that it is “legally restricted from releasing or commenting on the findings from its internal investigation”.

The Swiss Attorney General’s office confirmed the reception of the report, proclaiming that it “appreciates the preliminary exchange of information and FIFA’s close and consistent cooperation”.

Recalling the mishaps that threw the world football ruling body into such a traumatising crisis, there were more than dozen and a half officials indicted on the charges of embezzlement and related offences. Of these, some have confessed their crime and are awaiting sentence, and there are others who are hung in the trial.

FIFA is committed to conducting a thorough and comprehensive investigation of the facts so we could hold wrongdoers within football accountable and cooperate with the authorities,” the president revealed in a statement.

Swiss prosecutors “will continue to pursue those who enriched themselves and abused their positions of trust in football”, he added.
