Teixeira faces police queries

 

Brazil's Fifa member and 2014 World Cup chief, Ricardo Teixeira, spent three hours being questioned by fraud investigators this week, according to reports from Rio de Janeiro.

Teixeira met the federal police's financial crimes unit, Delefin, and was questioned about allegations he received payments from Fifa's collapsed marketing company, ISL.

BBC's Panorama has previously named Teixeira as having allegedly received payments via a Liechtenstein-based company. Vitor Poubel, head of Delefin, told Brazilian newspaper Lance: "Everything is being investigated and we can also ask for Teixeira's private tax and banking records."
