The FIFA Scandal

The FIFA Scandal, having become a continuous outrage to the public has been thoroughly investigated by officials. Interpol has recently arrested six members that have been linked to the FIFA scandal. Jack Warner, Nicolas Leoz, Alejandro Burzaco, Hugo Jinkis, Mariano Jinkis, and Jose Margulies have all been issued an arrest warrant.

At the highest level of the game, it is a shocker and an outrage to understand that a few of the elite officials have been involved in corruption through many notable scandals speaks out Brad Reifler.

Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner and former FIFA executive committee member Nicolas Leoz are two of the six wanted men that will be facing serious charges. The charges against Warner and Leoz include racketeering, conspiracy and corruption.

Two of the remaining four members are Hugo Jinkis and Mariano Jinkis. The two Argentine marketing executives have played a major role in the scandals with the controlling stake in Full Play Sports Group.

Another charged FIFA member is the Brazilian, José Margulles. He has been accused of controlling the principal of Valente Corp. and Somerton Ltd.. Other charges have been broadcasting business, as well as being wanted by the U.S. for charges of corruption.

U.S. Prosecutors have strong evidence that the location of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was a result of a 10 million dollar bribe made by Jerome Valcke who has stepped down from office as he is faced with potential charges.
