FIFA Investigator Slams FIFA Summary Of His Own Report

FIFA Investigator Slams FIFA Summary Of His Own Report
By Conor Neville

FIFA investigator, the US attorney Michael Garcia has lambasted for FIFA for 'misrepresenting' the findings of his investigation.

Garcia conducted a two year investigation into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, interviewing no fewer than 75 people and gathered evidence from nine bidding nations.

From these findings, he produced a voluminous (unpublished) report.

FIFA's ethics committee is divided into two components - the investigatory arm (led by Garcia) and the adjudicatory one (headed up by the German judge, Hans Joachim-Eckert).

The German judge published a summary of Garcia's report (declining to publish the whole thing) and has determined that there is not enough evidence to re-open the bidding process. Russia and Qatar will thus host the next two World Cups.

However, Garcia has cried foul. He has accused Eckert and FIFA of misrepresenting his findings.

He said that Eckert's summary 'contains numerous materially incomplete and erroneous representations.'
