Soccer body to probe claims of Kuwaiti bribery
    2017-May-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Asian Football Confederation says it is opening an investigation into claims that Kuwaiti leaders of the Olympic Council of Asia bribed the region’s soccer officials.

The independent probe announced Wednesday could identify leaders of AFC member federations suspected of taking bribes.

AFC executive committee member Richard Lai of Guam last month pleaded guilty to charges including wire fraud conspiracy in a Brooklyn federal court.

Lai admitted receiving more than US$850,000 from Kuwait from 2009 to 2014, including to help recruit Asian officials who might take bribes.

The soccer body, which suspended Lai, says it is “duty bound to investigate” allegations that are “if substantiated, extremely serious.”
