FIFA report reveals compelling evidence

| 24/06/2011

(AP):  FIFA's ethics committee says a report reveals "compelling" evidence that Mohamed bin Hammam and Jack Warner conspired to bribe presidential election voters before they were suspended from soccer. The committee concludes that bin Hammam's alleged actions in offering $40,000 cash payments to Caribbean officials "constitute prima facie an act of bribery." The report, seen by The Associated Press, says Warner was an accessory to bribery who offered "mere self-serving declarations" at a hearing last month. The 17-page document was sent last week to Warner, a FIFA vice president before he resigned his soccer positions.

FIFA dropped its investigation of Warner on Monday after he resigned, saying he maintains "the presumption of innocence."
