Fifa probes Caribbean football officials over bribes

| 27/07/2011

(BBC): Fifa has given Caribbean football officials 48 hours to explain their part in a meeting with ex-presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam. Football's governing body stated that "any person who has information" but does not comply with its corruption investigation will face sanctions. That could include the same life ban given to Bin Hammam on Saturday. He was found guilty of trying to buy votes from Caribbean Football Union members in a bid to be Fifa president. The Qatari said he will appeal against the ruling, which stated there was "comprehensive, convincing and overwhelming" proof that bribes had been paid to officials to support Bin Hammam's campaign for the Fifa presidency. 

Fifa said in a statement: "Fifa has sent a letter on 25 July to all CFU associations, asking the associations, their presidents, and any of their members with knowledge of anything that transpired during the meetings held on 10 and 11 May in Trinidad and Tobago, to provide and report all relevant information in their possession within 48 hours.
