The Truth about FIFA Corruption & Ricardo Teixeira – A verdade sobre FIFA Corrupção & Teixeira Ricardo
Good morning. Thank you for your invitation.
I have been an investigative reporter for 45 years. I research and acquire confidential documents.
Then I write books and articles and make investigation films for the BBC.
I have been investigating FIFA for 10 years.
I have considerable experience in investigating organised crime and I can assure you that FIFA ticks all the boxes in the academic definition of an Organised Crime Family.
Today I want to tell you about the latest corruption crisis at FIFA and how it will impact on the 2014 World Cup.
But first – Meet some of the members of FIFA’s 23-man Executive Committee.
