The COE yesterday published testimony given by Swiss prosecuting magistrate Thomas Hildbrand to the council about the ISL court case, and says backhanders worth at least 12.7m Swiss francs (£8.5m) were paid to one South American FIFA member, and 1.5m Swiss francs (£1.1m) to another senior FIFA official.
Payments were made by the now-defunct ISL marketing company which sold FIFA’s World Cup TV rights. The COE report is damning of Blatter’s role — even given that the FIFA president was not directly involved.
