Britain’s fraud office has received new information about money laundering as part of its investigation into soccer’s world governing body FIFA, the head of the agency said on Tuesday.
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said in May it was examining information relating to possible corruption at the governing body after the United States charged FIFA officials with fraud, bribery and money laundering.
Giving an update on the UK investigation to a committee of British lawmakers, SFO director David Green said the agency was still examining issues around possible money laundering but that he did not think it could examine FIFA under bribery laws.
