Fifa’s FBI-led investigation into bribery allegations against Mohamed Bin Hammam and Jack Warner has been contacted by new witnesses who claim they can support the accusations, Telegraph Sport can disclose.
Freeh has begun interviewing witnesses who attended the CFU meeting, including those who provided statements and sworn affidavits to the original investigation ordered by American Fifa executive committee member Chuck Blazer.
Former US federal prosecutor John Collins compiled a report based on witness statements from seven Caribbean football officials from four countries, as well as testimony from Blazer.
Blazer is expected to be interviewed by Freeh, as well as Anton Sealey, the president of the Bahamas Football Association who was first to raise the alleged bribes with Blazer
The new witnesses have come forward since Blazer warned members of the CFU earlier this week to return any money they may have been offered, or face investigation.
Bin Hammam and Warner have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation into allegations that they offered $1million (£600,000) in bribes at the CFU summit.
Officials are said to have been offered $40,000 in brown envelopes in exchange for their vote in the presidential election.
Both Bin Hammam and Warner deny any wrongdoing.
Warner has submitted a lengthy defence of his conduct, dismissing the allegations as a fabrication. His statement is accompanied by supporting statements from 13 Caribbean nations who say that the allegations are false.Those statements will also be closely scrutinised by Freeh.
Bin Hammam has appealed against his suspension and says the allegations are part of a dirty tricks campaign that prevented him from challenging Sepp Blatter in the Fifa presidential election.
Bin Hammam stood down from the election under pressure from the Emir of Qatar, who wants to avoid Fifa re-examining the bidding process for the 2022 World Cup.
The Qatar bid has been the subject of further scrutiny after Warner published an email in which Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke said the World Cup had been “bought”.
Valcke denied that he was implying corruption and Blatter said there is no case for Qatar to answer, but further revelations would make it hard to resist an investigation given the Fifa president’s commitment to “zero tolerance” this week.
