World Cup 2022: Qatar insist they adhered to Fifa bid rules amid claims of payment to official Jack Warner
Warner was removed by Fifa in disgrace over corruption
Tuesday 18 March 2014
Qatar World Cup chiefs have reacted to new claims surrounding the 2022 World Cup bid by insisting they adhered to all FIFA's rules.
The Daily Telegraph has claimed it has seen details of payments from a company owned by Qatari Mohamed Bin Hammam to fellow former FIFA member Jack Warner, from the Caribbean.
The two men's FIFA careers ended in disgrace after they were caught up in a corruption scandal surrounding Bin Hammam's campaign for the presidency of the world governing body in 2011.
A spokesman for Qatar's 2022 World Cup organising committee told the Telegraph: "The 2022 bid committee strictly adhered to FIFA's bidding regulations in compliance with their code of ethics.
"The supreme committee for delivery and legacy and the individuals involved in the 2022 bid committee are unaware of any allegations surrounding business dealings between private individuals."
