Audit reveals FIFA laissez-faire under Sepp Blatter’s mandate

    Gianni Infantino, who was elected president of FIFA in February 2016, immediately commissioned audit firm Deloitte to review financial practices during the reign of his predecessor Sepp Blatter (1998-2015). This audit, which led to the drafting of a “preliminary and confidential version” of a report to which The world was able to access, reveals a certain laxity in the control of expense reimbursements. For example, Jérôme Valcke, ex-secretary general of the institution, for example received $ 232,800 for the rental of an apartment in Rio for seven months. Sepp Blatter is the main target of this report which reports numerous payments by FIFA towards his life insurance (322 00 between 2006 and 2009) or towards a private supplementary pension (477 000 dollars between 2006 and 2007), and payments of around 650,000 euros to his own foundation without determining whether these payments were “connected to work” of the federation.
