ZURICH — Caribbean soccer leaders were given 48 hours by FIFA to explain their part in a Trinidad meeting where Mohamed bin Hammam allegedly offered them bribes or face life bans from the sport.
Caribbean Football Union members have been asked for their «truthful and complete» versions of events, FIFA said Tuesday. Soccer’s scandal-hit governing body sent letters Monday setting a Wednesday deadline to provide explanations and confessions.
FIFA’s ethics committee banned Qatar’s bin Hammam for life on Saturday after ruling he offered $40,000 cash bribes to Caribbean officials to back his later-abandoned presidential bid to unseat Sepp Blatter.»Any person who has relevant information but does not come forward during this 48-hour period will be subject to the full range of sanctions,» FIFA said in a statement.
In its letter to all 25 CFU members, FIFA asked «the associations, their presidents and any of their members … (for) knowledge of anything that transpired» in Trinidad at a May 10-11 conference, which bin Hammam acknowledges he paid for.
«Following this 48-hour period, the ethics committee will be asked to open the necessary ethics proceedings,» FIFA said. «Truthful and complete reporting will be considered in mitigation by the ethics committee when deciding on potential sanctions.»
