FIFA corruption scandal: Chuck Blazer went UNDERCOVER since 2011 to avoid 75-year sentence


Chuck Blazer, a former FIFA executive, went undercover to expose corruption in football since 2011. He did so in return for immunity from prosecution and to avoid a potential prison sentence of 75 years.

Blazer agreed to collect evidence implicating other Fifa executives and to become an informant for the FBI and US justice department. Details of that agreement were revealed on Monday night after a judge in New York agreed to a request by five media groups.

The 19-page co-operation agreement was signed by Chuck Blazer, who pleaded guilty in November 2013 to 10 counts including conspiracies to commit bribery, money laundering and tax evasion before he struck a deal with prosecutors in the United States.

About a month ago, US prosecutors arrested 14 Fifa officials on charges of racketeering, fraud and money laundering of millions of dollars over 24 years.

Blazer earning was more than $11 million in undeclared income between 2005 and 2010. He paid around $2 million in restitution in 2013 and will pay more when he is sentenced, Says the Daily Mail
