Chris Eaton is an Aussie officer who worked for the Interpol and as chief of Fifa security. Doha had recruited him to leak incriminating investigations against it from inside the international football association.

In 2010, Eaton met Qatar’s Interior Minister Abdullah Bin Nasser Al-Thani. One year later, when Fifa asked him to look into corruption accusations against Doha, he stalled and informed Qatar, warning Al-Thawadi, head of Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy. 

He later sent a congratulatory telegram to Qatar following winning hosting the World Cup and thanked Qataris for their luxurious gifts. 

Eaton left his Fifa position in 2012 and moved to Doha where he became manager of the sports integrity committee on a contract worth billions of dollars.
