FIFA May Seek to Identify Soccer Bribe Takers, Advisor Says

Soccer’s governing body may ask a Swiss court to identify senior officials who took money from its former marketing partner ISL, which went bankrupt in 2001, an adviser to FIFA said.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter is considering the move as he seeks to reform following corruption scandals and amid questions about awarding the $4 billion World Cup to Russia and Qatar, according to Sylvia Schenk, an official with Transparency International, who’s been advising the organization about changes to its governance.
