LONDON, February 21. /TASS/. FBI may organize a new series of arrests of FIFA officials on the day of the organization’s congress due in Zurich on February 26, the UK’s Daily Mail reported on Sunday.
During the upcoming congress, FIFA will elect its president.
"FIFA officials privately concede they fear the FBI could raid Zurich again and haul away yet more of their clan suspected of criminal activity," the newspaper wrote. "An FBI source has told The Mail on Sunday that the Feds are ‘cognisant’ that a FIFA Congress with 209 associations in town would provide an opportunity for action.
"The Mail on Sunday has seen hitherto secret paperwork outlining allegations that bribes were offered to assist a previous Sheik Salman election campaign in 2009, when he was fighting Qatar’s Mohamed Bin Hammam for a seat on FIFA’s executive committee.".
