New evidence of cash gift in Fifa scandal

A Caribbean football official has acknowledged getting $40,000 in cash at a meeting that’s being investigated in a Fifa bribery scandal.

Suriname federation president Louis Giskus says he received an envelope containing four piles of $100 bills at a Caribbean Football Union conference in Trinidad where members met then Fifa presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam.

Giskus tells The Associated Press he reported the cash gift to Fifa’s ethics committee after it suspended bin Hammam and Fifa’s Trinidadian vice president Jack Warner pending a full inquiry.

Giskus says Suriname’s “reputation is worth more than $40,000.”

He’s helping a Fifa team that includes former FBI agents investigate the alleged bribery.
