The announcement comes a day after FIFA president Sepp Blatter resigned amid the corruption scandal
(PARIS) — Interpol has put six men with ties to FIFA on its most wanted list, issuing an international alert for two former FIFA officials and four executives on charges including racketeering and corruption.
The “Red Notices” announced Wednesday were for former FIFA vice president Jack Warner of Trinidad and former executive committee member Nicolas Leoz of Paraguay.
Others listed were Argentinians Alejandro Burzaco and brothers Hugo and Mariano Jinkis, who together are accused of paying more than $100 million in bribes for media and commercial rights to soccer tournaments; and Jose Margulies, a Brazilian broadcast executive.
The announcement from Interpol comes a day after Sepp Blatter announced he will step down as FIFA president amid the widening corruption scandal.
