Members of FIFA's executive committee arrived at the FIFA headquarters in Zurich, Tuesday, for an extraordinary meeting on the ongoing corruption scandal that has rocked world football's governing body in recent months. The meeting was announced on October 9, the day after FIFA's ethics committee suspended FIFA president Sepp Blatter, vice-president Michel Platini and secretary general Jerome Valcke for 90 days whilst the trio are investigated over allegations of corruption. On Friday, October 17, FIFA's reform committee gathered at the five-star Hotel Bellevue Palace in Bern for a three-day congress as further allegations of corruption emerged. The committee, which came together for the first time in September, comprises representatives of FIFA's six continental confederations and was set up to introduce proposals to reform FIFA following the corruption scandal. The latest allegations of corruption to rock FIFA hit headlines last week when German magazine Der Spiegal claimed that the German committee responsible for organising the country's bid for the 2006 World Cup created a 'slush fund' which it used to bribe FIFA officials. Der Spiegal claims to have copies of internal documents showing that funds were used to secure the vote of unnamed Asian representatives on FIFA's executive committee for the 2006 World Cup. FIFA has said it would review the allegations.
