Some good work by Martyn Ziegler has revealed one key photo in the evidence against Mohamed bin Hammam, Jack Warner and two member of the Caribbean Football Union. The four were accused of offering $40,000 bribes in exchange for votes in the upcoming FIFA presidential election after FIFA vice-president Chuck Blazer compiled evidence and sent it to the FIFA ethics committee. It led to the provisional suspension of all four as the ethics committee continues to investigate the matter. In the file of evidence was this photo of the cash offered in the bribe.
The scandal is just another in a long list of allegations of corruption within FIFA. The suspension of bin Hammam, Asian Football Confederation president, ruled him out of Wednesday's election for FIFA president and has left the incumbent, Sepp Blatter, as the only candidate. With evidence like the photo above and sworn affidavits that the money was offered as part of a bribe it is unclear what further investigation the ethics committee needs.
