PSG President Allegedly Involved Case Bribery about World Cup Broadcast Rights
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) president Nasser Al-Khelaifi will face an investigation into alleged corruption in World Cup 2018 rights funds.
As reported by the Marca website, the Swiss prosecutor (OAG) will be Al Khelaifi’s investigator of indications of corruption, bribery and falsification of documents.
OAG claims that Al-Khelaifi bribed former FIFA Secretary-General, Jerome Valcke, for the rights to broadcast World Cup 2026 and 2030.
“Jerome Valcke is suspected of taking bribes from a sports sector entrepreneur regarding World Cup 2018, 2022, 2026 and 2030 rights in some countries,” one OAG investigator said.
“Valcke also indicated a bribe from Al-Khelaifi for World Cup rights 2026 and 2030 in certain countries,” he continued.
As is known, PSG is not the only business Al-Khelaifi.
He is also the owner of one of the television networks.
The allegations against Al-Khelaifi are allegedly involved directly with allegations of corruption cases that made Qatar when volunteered to host the 2020 World Cup.
