Qatar World Cup committee to meet with FIFA over bribery scandal

Members of Qatar’s World Cup bidding committee are expected to meet with FIFA to sort out the scandal around the 2022 bid. This is due to allegations that FIFA’s former vice-president Mohamed Bin Hammam bribed officials with 5 million dollars in exchange for support for Qatar to win the bid. He was banned for life in 2011, but the ban was reversed a year later due to a lack of strong evidence. The Qatari group has always denied any wrongdoing. (Image source: BBC) -
