South African Police Investigating World Cup Bribes

South African authorities have opened a "preliminary" investigation into World Cup bribery allegations, and an opposition lawmaker said Thursday he had information suggesting "high-level" involvement.
Anton Alberts of the Freedom Front Plus said the information his party received claimed a previous investigation into "irregular" payments around the World Cup bid was stopped by "high-level interference."
An opposition member of parliament said the information does tell of 'an event that took place and an investigation that was stunted from a political level.'
Documents were being handed over to the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation unit and needed to be investigated fully.
