The office of Switzerland’s attorney general said the investigation concerns bribes allegedly offered to former Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke to award 2026 and 2030 World Cup rights to Qatari-owned BeIN Media Group.

The proceeding in the Swiss authorities’ broader Fifa investigation is against “Jerome Valcke, the chief executive officer of the BeIN Media Group LLC Nasser Al Khelaifi and a businessman in the sports rights sector”, Swiss federal prosecutors said.

Swiss prosecutors said Valcke was questioned on Thursday and properties were searched in France, Greece, Italy and Spain.
