The Frenchman Jérôme Valcke enjoyed an apartment in Rio de Janeiro months before (from May to December 2013) of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil for which FIFA paid 232,800 dollars. In addition, between 2008 and 2015, the own Valcke spent up to $ 31,396 on behalf of FIFA for “shopping in luxury boutiques of flowers, champagne or clothes”. Before Le Monde, Valcke said that these expenses are justified by FIFA.To the former president of the CAF, Issa Hayatou, FIFA paid him up to $ 217,322 to cover medical expenses and the Thai Worawi Makudi came to cover bills issued by his federation worth $ 309,868 between 2009 and 2015.It affected the past but also the present. FIFA paid $ 22,827 for “private expenses” to Tahitian Reynald Temarii jat the time when French justice investigated its relationship with the award of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar. “We will restore the image of FIFA.” When Gianni Infantino entered as top FIFA president to replace Joseph Blatter, he set out to ‘clean up’ an institution that was beset by corruption scandals. So, the president of FIFA commissioned in 2016 a report to the consulting firm Deloitte on all amounts paid from 2005 to the end of 2015 to executives of the federation, elected positions and other positions of the institution.This auditor closed the report in February 2017 to which the French newspaper Le Monde had access exclusively. This newspaper explains several data that it has been able to extract from a “preliminary and confidential version” of this dossier.According to this report, FIFA never applied the spending approval criteria and allowed members to make bank payments without “record the details of the beneficiaries of the payments”. Deloitte assures in this report that many members of the executive committee received up to 300,000 euros per year and, above all, a notable permissiveness for spending.last_img
