Communications purport to show series of payments to officials by Mohamed bin Hammam, who was Fifas member for Qatar Share inShare 62 Email Mark Tran and Rowena Mason, Sunday 1 June 2014 11.20 BST Mohamed Bin Hammam and Sepp Blatter meet in Doha, in 2010. Mohamed Bin Hammam and Sepp Blatter meet in Doha, in 2010. Photograph: Mohammed Dabbous/Reuters Fifa is facing calls to rerun the bidding competition for the 2022 World Cup after allegations that a former top Qatari football official paid $5m (£2.98m) to win support for the nations campaign to host the event. Labour said Qatar should lose the 2022 World Cup and urged those involved to resign if the Fifa corruption allegations detailed in the Sunday Times were true. Clive Efford, the shadow sport minister, said the new revelations called the governance of football into question. No one will have any confidence in a Fifa investigation run by Sepp Blatter, he said. If these allegations are true then those involved should resign. Lord Macdonald, the former director of public prosecutions, described Fifa as a bit of a cesspit and suggested there was evidence of a very serious crime following the reports. He told Sky Newss Murnaghan programme: The idea of another voting session with all this money sloshing around is almost too much to bear. But on the other hand, if I can pretend to be a prosecutor again for a minute, this is evidence of a very serious crime. And the fact that the allegation is that they used dollars, US dollars, means that the justice department in Washington has jurisdiction over this … the United States of course are in the World Cup finals. If the justice department started to take an interest in this, I think Fifa would feel the heat very, very quickly. The Sunday Times said it had obtained millions of emails and other documents relating to alleged payments made by Mohamed bin Hammam, the then Fifa executive member for Qatar. The paper said Bin Hammam, also the former Asian Football Confederation (AFC) president, used slush funds to pay out the cash to top football officials to win a groundswell of support for Qatars World Cup bid. John Whittingdale, chairman of the House of Commons culture, media and sport select committee, called for the bidding competition to be held again and said it would be impossible for Fifa to brush aside the revelations. It is a further demonstration of the need for a complete change in the way that Fifa operates but also that there is now an overwhelming case that the decision as to where the World Cup should be held in 2022 should be run again, Whittingdale told the paper. The sports minister, Helen Grant, said: These appear to be very serious allegations. It is essential that major sporting events are awarded in an open, fair and transparent manner. The allegations come less than two weeks before the start of the World Cup in Brazil and bring fresh scrutiny on the 2010 vote, which gave footballs biggest tournament to the tiny desert state. The process is under investigation by Fifas independent ethics prosecutor, Michael Garcia. Qatar has also come under fire for its labour laws, in the wake of an international outcry over conditions for migrant workers before the 2022 World Cup, which followed a Guardian investigation into workplace abuse in the Gulf state. Bin Hammam is no longer a committee member of world footballs governing body after being caught up in a corruption scandal surrounding his failed campaign for its presidency in 2011. The Sunday Times alleged that he exploited his position as an executive committee member to help to secure votes from key members of its 24
