AP wrote:PARIS (AP) — Former UEFA president Michel Platini has been arrested in relation to a corruption probe into the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, a judicial official said Tuesday.

Confirming a report by online news publication Mediapart, the official said Platini was taken into custody on Tuesday as part of the investigation into the awarding of the tournament. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation.

Platini, a former France soccer great, was being detained at the Anti-Corruption Office of the Judicial Police outside Paris.

French financial prosecutors have been investigating the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups and previously questioned former FIFA president Sepp Blatter. France’s financial prosecutor services opened the investigation on grounds of private corruption, criminal association, influence peddling and benefiting from influence peddling relating to the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, which were awarded to Russia and Qatar, respectively.

I wonder if my very own Jack Warner is gonna get snatch as well. I know he had a hand in that Qatar nonsense. On that same note, the sheer gal these men had to perform such a clear-as-day piece of corruption is really something. May they all rot in prison or spend their entire life arguing in a court room to then go to prison.

They're all corrupt. They're trying to shut Platini up because he's salty about what happened to him and he's making noise that could implicate politicians in France.

Everyone got paid by Russia and Qatar.

Juventus DNA. Proud

Instead of becoming a manager or a technical director, this piece of shit followed a legendary playing career with being a corrupt executive. :facepalm:

He picked the wrong time to become a legend. Top players back then only earned a fraction of what they earn today. Unfortunately for him, his dribbling ability didn’t transition over to corrupt politics hmm

I get that but it's not like he was making shit pay in his former position. I am fairly certain his remuneration package was extremely delightful in the position he was in. Not to mention the perks of being head of UEFA. I think this was just straight up greed.

They didn't need to pay everyone off. They had the votes. That 1/3 is likely salty that they didn't get any of the cheese lol.

France.  They're trying to find a Pablo Picasso painting that was given to him by the head of the Russian Football Federation (no joke).

He's a Juve star so it makes sense he's involved in racketeering.

Could't find anything. Platini was released with no charges.
