Swiss quiz PSG boss, ex-FIFA No.2 in bribery case

Geneva – Paris Saint-Germain chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi and FIFA’s disgraced former secretary general, Jerome Valcke, were being questioned Monday by Swiss prosecutors probing alleged corruption in the attribution of football broadcasting rights.

A third, unnamed suspect in the case – described by Swiss prosecutors as “a businessman in the sports rights sector” – is also accused of paying bribes to secure broadcast rights.

It added that it was yet not clear whether formal indictments would be filed against any of the suspects or whether the cases would be abandoned.

Al-Khelaifi was separately charged in May by French prosecutors in connection with Doha’s candidacy to stage the world athletics championships.
