Responding to attacks on his integrity, Mark Pieth says looking at FIFA’s past is “necessary” to understand the “risk scenarios.”
The Basel University professor says his Independent Governance Committee has “absolutely no objection to an investigation.”
Former FIFA consultants Transparency International left Blatter’s reform process last week, claiming Pieth’s panel was not truly independent.
The anti-corruption watchdog also said FIFA wasn’t interested in resolving past scandals.
Pieth says he will meet soon with investigative journalists who are “experts on FIFA’s past.”
