Interpol suspends 20 million euro deal with FIFA

International police body Interpol on Friday announced it was suspending a 10-year partnership deal with FIFA worth 20 million euros ( 22 mn) following a corruption probe into football’s world governing body.

Interpol boss Juergen Stock said he was suspending the deal set up in May 2011 to create a 10-year “Integrity in Sport” programme. 

“In light of the current context surrounding FIFA, while Interpol is still committed to developing our Integrity in Sport programme, I have decided to suspend the agreement,” said Stock in a statement.
“All external partners, whether public or private, must share the fundamental values and principles of the organisation, as well as those of the wider law enforcement community,” added Stock.
