Lyon - Interpol has suspended its 10-year, $22.4 million partnership with
FIFA while soccer's governing body is implicated in bribery allegations.
The international police liaison group says it will "freeze the use of
financial contributions from FIFA."
Interpol secretary general Juergen Stock says the decision was taken
"in light of the current context surrounding FIFA."
The agreement includes a clause that FIFA must be "compatible with the
principles, aims and activities of Interpol."
Last week, Interpol issued a global alert about two former FIFA officials
and four marketing executives on charges including racketeering and corruption.
In May 2011, FIFA agreed to fund a 10-year program to tackle match-fixing
operated from an Interpol base in Singapore.
