FIFA has revealed growing demands to re-open investigations into corruption and multi-billion dollar bribes offered by Doha to win the organization rights of most important sporting event, after foreign reports revealed more documents and evidence on the extent of Qatar’s bribery, manipulation and violation of FIFA laws.
British newspaper The Sunday Times said that FIFA was receiving increasing demands to reopen investigations into how Qatar could be granted the right to host the 2022 World Cup after Doha’s team was found to conduct "black ops" to discredit competitors.
A senior source close to the FIFA Ethics Committee confirmed that the information about the campaign unveiled by the Sunday Times last week was not available during the investigation into Qatar's bid to host the World Cup four years ago.
He added that FIFA should now suspend key members of the Qatari bidding team while considering the charges, but FIFA's ethics committee has become less independent under current President Gianni Infantino and is now less powerful than it was under former FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
Meanwhile, Britain is preparing to host the World Cup. British Lord David Trezman, member of the House of Lords and the head of the England file from the International Federation of Football (FIFA), has asked to investigate Qatar's exploitation of people to influence their countries’ bidding, he also asked to withdraw the World Cup organization rights and give it to England if the abuses are proven.
