تناول البرلمان الأوروبي في جلسته،أمس الأربعاء، ادعاءات الفساد التي طالت الاتحاد الدولي لكرة القدم (فيفا)، حيث أكد نوابه أن هذه الادعاءات "قوضت الثقة بالمؤسسات الرياضية."

 

وشدد النواب الأوربيون، على ضرورة إجراء تغييرات في بنية "الفيفا"، والصلاحيات الممنوحة للمدراء وطريقة إدارة الانتخابات، بالإضافة إلى الشفافية في مكافحة الفساد في مؤسسات الاتحاد الدولي.

 

هذا ويعتزم البرلمان الأوروبي في جلسته اليوم الخميس، التصويت على مسودة قرار يقضي بضرورة إجراء تحقيق موسع في ادعاءات الفساد المذكورة، مع التأكيد على الضرر الذي ألحقته هذه الادعاءات بكرة القدم على الصعيد الدولي.

 

كما تتضمن مسودة القرار حضَّ مسؤولي كرة القدم على توجيه دعوة للدول التي تستضيف الفعاليات الدولية المتعلقة بكرة القدم، إلى احترام حقوق الإنسان، مع الإشارة إلى العمال الذين فقدوا حياتهم في أعمال بناء الملاعب الرياضية في قطر التي تستضيف نهائيات كأس العالم عام 2022.

 

وواجه الفيفا  نهاية شهر أيار/مايو الماضي انتقادات حادة، إثر إعلان وزارة العدل الأمريكية عن توجية اتهامات بـ"الفساد" لـ 14 مسؤولا بالاتحاد، وقيام الشرطة السويسرية باعتقال سبعة منهم صباح اليوم ذاته.

 

 

- The European Parliament adopts a resolution asking FIFA to select an interim leader to replace FIFA President Sepp Blatter

 

 

PARIS (AA)- Jun 11, 2015   The European Parliament on Thursday adopted a resolution urging FIFA President Sepp Blatter to leave office immediately,  and calling for new interim president to replace him.

 

The resolution, which was passed by a show of hands, welcomed Blatter's resignation.

 

 "FIFA should put in place a transparent, balanced and democratic decision-making process, including one for the election of the new president," reads the resolution.

 

The European Parliament said in an accompanying statement that it " regrets that recent corruption allegations against the international football federation FIFA have seriously damaged the credibility and the integrity of global football."

 

The resolution also called for "all officials involved in financial misconduct to be dismissed and for any decisions that are linked to corrupt or criminal activities should be reviewed."

 

The top football governing body has announced on Wednesday that it will hold its extraordinary executive committee meeting in July to discuss the date of presidential elections to replace Blatter.

 

The U.S. Department of Justice recently indicted 14 individuals on charges of racketeering; wire fraud and money laundering that involved the world football governing body.

 

Seven of those were arrested in Zurich and are awaiting extradition to the U.S. Four others had already been charged.

 

The case has sent shockwaves across the world, forcing longtime FIFA head Blatter, 79, to announce his resignation on June 2, four days after being re-elected.

 

The FIFA 2026 World Cup bidding process has been put on hold for an investigation into award to Russia of the 2018 contest and to Qatar of the 2022 tournament.

 

 

The resolution urged the EU and its member states "to cooperate fully with all ongoing and future investigations on corrupt practices within FIFA."

Former senior FIFA official admits to taking bribes

 

 

- Chuck Blazer says he and others agreed to receving bribes for 1998, 2010 world cup selections

 

 

NEW YORK (AA) – A former top FIFA executive admitted to accepting bribes over the selection of host nations for the 1998 and 2010 world cups, according to U.S. court documents unsealed Wednesday.

 

Chuck Blazer, who was a FIFA Executive Committee member from 1996 to 2013, said in testimony during a bribery investigation in 2013 that he and other members of the committee agreed to receive bribes in exchange for votes in favor of France and South Africa as 1998 and 2010 World Cup hosts respectively.

 

"I and others on the FIFA executive committee agreed to accept bribes in conjunction with the selection of South Africa as the host nation for the 2010 World Cup", said Blazer.

 

"I agreed with other persons in or around 1992 to facilitate the acceptance of a bribe in conjunction with the selection of the host nation for the 1998 World Cup", he said.

 

The release of the documents comes days after the U.S. Department of Justice indicted 14 individuals on charges of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering that involved the world's football governing body.

 

Seven of those were arrested in Zurich and are awaiting extradition to the U.S.

 

Four others had already been charged, including Blazer, whose cooperation as a key cooperating witness in the investigation led to last week's arrests.

 

The case has sent shockwaves across the world, forcing longtime FIFA head Sepp Blatter to announce his resignation Tuesday night four days after being re-elected.
