FIFA turns a blind eye to 'corruption' in new code of ethics

Aug 14, 2018 16:38 IST

FIFA has removed the word 'corruption' from its latest code of ethics and it is no longer an official misdemeanour. The move follows a series of corruption scandals that hit the organisation in 2015. It also introduces a new offence - defamation - which can lead to a 2 to 5 year ban from football-related activities.
