FIFA Presidential challengers requests for ‘Blatter’ Investigation

FIFA presidential contender Mohamed Bin Hammam has described for current Sepp Blatter to be prosecuted as part of a continuing corruption probe.

The competitor is amid four officials who will be subject to an official world football administrating body investigation in their ways. Mr. Bin Hammam, who owes to stand against present boss Mr. Blatter in Wednesday's voting and has rejected any misconduct, is due to face FIFA's Ethics Committee on Sunday.

But a proclamation from his spokesman said: "As the latest allegations also quote present FIFA president Joseph Blatter, Mohamed Bin Hammam has applied for that the inquiry be prolonged to include Mr. Blatter."

If the FIFA Ethics Committee assurances a fair procedure, I have nothing to worry about.

The announcement in favor of the 62-year-old Qatari keep on: "It is no chance that these charges have been made only a few days before the 61st FIFA Congress, at which the new FIFA president will be chosen.

"He denies these allegations and assures that they are without material. The blames also hold statements according to which Mr.  Blatter, the serving FIFA president, was well versed of, but did not resist, payments purportedly made to members of the Caribbean Football Union.
"I am not at all worried about to reply any query that the Ethics Committee may have for me at the inquiry next Sunday, if the committee assures a free and fair procedure, I have nothing to panic."

Mr. Blatter has rejected argues that the blames against Mr. Bin Hammam are part of his effort to cover his rivals.

The fresh query into FIFA officials - who also include deputy president Jack Warner - comes after a split investigation was opened this month into allegations about the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Previous FA chairman Lord Triesman told Parliament's Culture, Media and Sport select committee that he had spectator "indecent and immoral" behavior by four executive committee members - including Mr. Warner - during his time as England's 2018 World Cup proposition chairman.
