The contracts about television broadcast the last two world cups, signed by the President of the International Football Association (FIFA) Sepp Blatter, will be subject to a thorough investigation, report the Swiss judicial authorities.
Doubts are directed primarily to deal with the Caribbean Football Union, which received the rights for a small amount, and bought and sold them for far greater. The treaty was signed in 2005 and apply to the World Championships in the Republic of South Africa and Brazil. Jack Warner, former Vice President of the FIFA, against whom a case like this run in the United States, has denied participation in the signing of contracts with the understated amounts and, accordingly, the financial scam in especially large size. Sepp Blatter, who at the time could not be filed lawsuit, also pleaded not guilty.
The signal for corruption came from Swiss television 'SRF`, which claims that FIFA has sold for $600,000, the rights of the Caribbean Football Union. Its President at that time, Warner, had transferred them to his own company and made a deal for a sum between 15 and 20 million dollars.
