After the surprise resignation of controversal FIFA President Sepp Blatter yesterday, the hunt is on for six people connected to the FIFA investigation. Interpol has just issued red notices for six former FIFA officials. 

At the request of US authorities, INTERPOL issued so called Red Notices for two former FIFA officials and four corporate executives for charges including racketeering, conspiracy and corruption.

The Red Notices have been issued for:

  • Jack Warner, Trinidad & Tobago national, former FIFA vice president and executive committee member, CONCACAF president, CFU president and Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) special adviser.
  • Nicolás Leoz, Paraguayan national, former FIFA executive committee member and CONMEBOL president.
  • Alejandro Burzaco, Argentine national, controlling principal of Torneos y Competencias S.A., a sports marketing business based in Argentina, and its affiliates.
  • Hugo Jinkis and Mariano Jinkis, Argentine nationals, controlling principals of Full Play Group S.A., a sports marketing business based in Argentina, and its affiliates.
  • José Margulies (also known as José Lazaro), Brazilian national, controlling principal of Valente Corp. and Somerton Ltd., broadcasting businesses.

Red Notices are one of the ways in which INTERPOL informs its member countries that an arrest warrant has been issued for an individual by a judicial authority and seeks the location and arrest of wanted persons with a view to extradition or similar lawful action.

Today the testimony of the FBI informant Check Blazer is going to be made public. This might potentially reveal more details or even put Blatter at the center of investigation going forward.
