Fifa Accused of Being Too Lenient on Corruption Allegations
It has come to light that the chairman of Fifa’s independent governance committee, Mark Pieth, thinks that the previous investigations into the alleged misconduct within the body have been totally insufficient and far too lenient.
Fifa has had to fight off numerous corruption and misconduct claims recently and for this reason they have had to investigate certain departments.
The IGC was set up last year in order to try and get to the bottom of many of the calls of corruption within Fifa and it reported its findings thus far on Friday.
The allegations surrounded world cup bidding and the presidential election.
Mark Peith has said that Fifia’s investigations stopped short of delving into the real reasons and issues behind the allegations and that more questioned needed to be asked in order for a proper study to take place.
HE also said that he would recommend that investigating body go back around 10 years to look into old allegations of corruption in the body.
He has said that if he is not allowed to look further and probe deeper than he has currently been allowed that the will have to walk away from the investigation as so far what has been unveiled has not proved productive .
