The FIFA ethics committee has opened proceedings against president Sepp Blatter, Mohamed Bin Hammam and charged FIFA vice-president Jack Warner with bribery.
FIFA said in a statement...
'On 26 May 2011, FIFA ex-co member Mohamed Bin Hammam has requested the FIFA ethics committee to open ethics proceedings against FIFA president Joseph S. Blatter on the basis that, in the report submitted by FIFA ex-co member Chuck Blazer earlier this week, FIFA vice-president Jack A. Warner would have informed the FIFA president in advance about alleged cash payments to delegations attending a special meeting of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) apparently organised jointly by Jack A. Warner and Mohamed Bin Hammam on 10 and 11 May 2011 and that the FIFA President would have had no issue with these.'
'Subsequently, the FIFA ethics committee today opened a procedure against the FIFA president in compliance with art. 16 of the FIFA code of ethics. Joseph S. Blatter has been invited to take position by 28 May 2011, 11:00 CET and to attend a hearing by the FIFA ethics committee at the Home of FIFA (Zurich) on 29 May 2011.'
There have been rumours floating around the footballing world surrounding FIFA delegates taking bribes for years. 'Is FIFA rotten to the core?'
