Qatar devastated 2022 World Cup competitors with ‘black ops

  • screenshot_6

The shady Qatar World Cup team has violated Fifa’s rules by deploying black operations to ruin opponents running to host the tournament, The Sunday Times reported.

Emails from a whistleblower show how the bid paid a public relations firm and former CIA agents to pump out fake propaganda about its main rivals, the United States and Australia, during its successful campaign to host the next World Cup.

The campaign involved recruiting influential people to attack the bids in their own countries, seeking to create the impression that there was “zero support” for the World Cup domestically.

Corruption on various levels 

Swiss judiciary began an urgent investigation on Nasser Al-Khelaifi , chief executive of the beIN Sports group, on the background of his involvement in the irregularities of the World Cup broadcasting rights.

This decision came hours after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) rejected the appeal filed by the former Secretary General of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA), French Jerome Valcke, and confirmed his suspension for 10 years on the grounds of corruption, according to the announcement on Friday.

The Swiss investigation has identified a close relationship between Jerome Valcke and Al-Khelaifi, along with evidence for corruption allegations and concessions provided by the former FIFA official to Al Khelaifi on granting media rights to a number of countries for the 2018, 2022, 2026 and 2030 World Cups.

Valcke was suspended on February 16, 2016 for 12 years by the FIFA’s Ethics Committee, then reduced to 10 after the appeal, for re-selling 2014 World Cup tickets and traveling on private jets at FIFA’s expense for personal purposes.
