FIFA Rids Itself Of Corruption . . . By Eliminating “Corruption” From Its New Ethics Code and Allowing Prosecution Of Critics

JONATHAN TURLEY

William_Powell_Frith_Claude_DuvalAs many of you know, I have been a long critic of the corrupt history of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and its sleazy leadership. For years, many have called for FIFA officials to end their global reputation as corrupt and self-dealing. They showed utter contempt for such calls and investigation. It was not until the United States worked with other countries to arrest top officials that FIFA fessed up to its problems. However, it did not take long for FIFA to go back to its old ways.  It has now made future corruption scandals less likely not by the implementation of  new rules allowing the punishment of those who “defame” FIFA officials or the organization.  Indeed, the word “corruption” is no longer in the code of ethics. Moreover, bribes and other violations kept secret for ten years will be essentially wiped clean for purposes of prosecution.
