The source told AFP that the Qatari businessman denied corruption and said he only learned recently of the two transfers.The judges, who are investigating the sprawling Diack case, placed Al-Khelaifi under the intermediate status of “assisted witness”, meaning that he is not being examined at this stage but remains a person of interest in the investigation.In Switzerland, Al-Khelaifi, who is also the head of the TV network BeIN sports is in the crosshairs of an investigation into “private corruption “, concerning the attribution of the broadcasting rights to two football World Cups.Last week, the Court of Arbitration in Sport backed PSG’s appeal against the governing body of European football’s attempt to reopen an investigation into the club for financial wrongdoing.

The event was awarded to London but, in 2014, Doha was awarded the 2019 IAAF games which start on September 28.These payments were outlined in a memorandum of understanding, in which Oryx undertook to purchase sponsorship and TV rights for $32.6 million, provided Doha obtained the World 2017 championships, according to a source close to the file.last_img read more

The Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) Act was passed in the House of Representatives recently.The Bill seeks to establish MOCA as an independent body to fight organised crime in Jamaica, including detecting and investigating crime kingpins and persons who facilitate their activities.The organisation will be transformed into an elite law-enforcement investigative agency, operating autonomously of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.Closing the debate, Minister of National Security, Hon. Robert Montague, said MOCA continues to play an invaluable role in the administration of justice in the country.“Since 2014, they have undertaken some 904 operations and have arrested 1,054 persons. Of that amount, 684 persons have been charged and, so far from those charges, 146 convictions have been handed down, and other cases are ongoing,” he said.The Minister noted that the establishment of MOCA as an independent body will enhance the country’s crime-fighting efforts.“MOCA will not be a substitute for the Jamaica Constabulary Force, nor any other law-enforcement agency for that matter. MOCA’s establishment will complement existing law-enforcement agencies and will in no way diminish their powers or authority. We expect that through partnership and cooperation, MOCA will only serve to strengthen our law-enforcement capabilities,” he said.last_img read more
