FIFA-gate: SA still in denial
June 5 th, 2015
For South Africa, there are no official ripostes on the overwhelming report to FIFA that was made public on Wednesday. The former secretary general of CONCACAF acknowledged that there had been bribes paid by Morocco and South Africa to obtain the World Cups in 1988 and 2010. Pretoria continues to deny the allegations. For the fourth time, SA’s sports minister categorically rejected bribery allegations. According to US justice, Pretoria would have paid R124m to the former vice president of FIFA, Jack Warner, in exchange for three votes. The minister lashed out at the US justice, accusing the US of playing ‘world policeman’.
