Seaga says JFF must declare if it took bribe from Bin Hammam

1 Comment
President of the Jamaica Premier League Clubs Association, Edward Seaga says the
Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) needs to disclose whether it was the recipient
of the alleged US$40,000 bribery funds from Mohamed Bin Hammam, the President of
the Asian Football Confederation.
Mr. Seaga says the JFF runs the risk of being exposed and embarrassed if it does
not break its silence on the issue.
"We're saying a clear statement has to be made and must be made otherwise you
face being a part of the disclosure when the investigation starts. If you were
involved in a disclosure at that time, it's going to make the organisation one
that brings football in Jamaica into disrepute, so we're hoping that they're not
going to be involved in that way but it's up to them ... it's not something that
we can force," he said.
Mr. Seaga added that federations guilty of accepting corrupt payments should
face some action from football's governing body FIFA, if they are serious about
cleaning the sport.
