Cape Town - FIFA on Tuesday rejected an appeal by former US prosecutor Michael Garcia against the handling of his inquiry into alleged corruption around the Russian and Qatar bids for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

A FIFA appeal committee ruled that the request made by Garcia was "not admissible."

Garcia, who spent 18 months investigating the World Cup votes won by Russia and Qatar, had complained that a summary of his report released by FIFA's top judge was "incomplete and erroneous." FIFA has insisted the full report cannot be released.
