Mohamed bin Hammam still isn't happy with the corruption allegations leveled towards him by FIFA with a presidential election coming up, despite Sepp Blatter now also being treated similarly. His personal website (written rather amusingly in the third person) described the charges as a 'tawdry manoeuvre', which is a phrase I personally will be throwing into my conversations far more often:
Despite the fact that Mohamed Bin Hammam only had 48 hours to answer accusations of bribery, he submitted his reply to FIFA by 12 pm on Friday. There is increasing evidence of a conspiracy against his candidacy for the FIFA presidency.
It is obvious that these allegations have been made to discredit Mr Bin Hammam as a candidate in the imminent election for the FIFA presidency. It is quite obvious that, following previous failed attempts, this is part of a final effort to prevent Mr Bin Hammam from running for the FIFA presidency. Mr Bin Hammam expects FIFA's Ethics Committee to see through this tawdry manoeuvre.
By this point, it's all getting a little bit silly. Both the current President and his only competition in the upcoming election are under investigation for corruption charges, somehow making FIFA look even more ridiculous than they usually do. Bin Hammam has a point, as well - this does simply look like manoeuvring on Blatter's part to get him disqualified from the election, even if Blatter is being charged as well.
