Transparency International calls on FIFA to improve governance

Article by Aarti Maharaj in Corporate Secretary reports that Transparency International, the corruption campaigning and monitoring group, has produced a report that suggests, among other things, that a group of independent outsiders should oversee the current review.
 “FIFA says it wants to reform, but successive bribery scandals have left public trust in it at an all-time low. Working with an oversight group – taking its advice, giving it access, letting it participate in investigations – will show whether there is going to be real change. The process has to start now,” said Sylvia Schenk, senior advisor on sport to TI.

That certainly suggests a pretty low degree of trust in Fifa and its internal processes...probably well deserved.
