Oh, them? We don't really know them.
Now that the legal shitpile is sliding down on FIFA, Swiss banks are marvelling at the many instances of money laundering they are now able to see. With cries of "Merde, Mon Dieu" and "Scheiße, mein Gott" the criminal moves of FIFA are becoming apparent, now.
Swiss banks have noted 53 possible money-laundering incidents as part of an investigation of FIFA's 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding contests, the country's Attorney General Michael Lauber said Wednesday.Damn those FIFA people! They were so clever hiding their crimes for all those years.
He said the “suspicious bank relations” were reported within the framework of Switzerland's anti-money-laundering regulations.
Lauber added that he “does not exclude” the possibility of interviewing FIFA’s outgoing President Sepp Blatter and Secretary General Jerome Valcke in the future, though neither are currently under suspicion.
Addressing the media for the first time since the Swiss investigation into world soccer’s governing body was announced three weeks ago, Lauber said the case is “huge and complex.”
He declined to discuss a timetable for the case, which targets “criminal mismanagement and money laundering” in the bidding contests which sent the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 tournament to Qatar.
