Football at Risk If Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup Bid Proven Corrupt – Sports Lawyer

The former president of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), Michel Platini, was detained Tuesday in a Paris suburb as part of a corruption probe into Qatar gaining the right to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. After hours of questioning Platini was released without charges.

Early on Wednesday, Platini’s lawyer William Bourdon said that he had been released without charge, adding that there has been “a lot of fuss over nothing”, according to AFP. However, local media reported that Platini, 63, looked drawn as he left the police anti-corruption office in Nanterre in the western Paris on Wednesday.

All UEFA and FIFA officials are obliged not to put themselves in a position where there is a conflict of interest, they must not accept bribes and they must not bring the sport into disrepute.

Similarly, reference must also be made to the French sports law, which is quite explicit in terms of acts of sports corruption.
