FIFA urged to launch new bribery investigations

CBC.ca: "After banishing Mohamed bin Hammam for life in a bribery scandal, FIFA was challenged Monday to uphold its zero-tolerance fight against corruption by investigating each football official who attended a now-infamous meeting in Trinidad.

A wider probe must examine three more members of FIFA's executive committee who accompanied the Qatari official on his presidential campaign visit and all the Caribbean football leaders allegedly receiving his $40,000 cash gifts, the Transparency International global watchdog said."
