World football’s governing body, FIFA, has opened investigation into the alleged financial corruption surrounding the Liberian Football Association (FA), its controversial president Musa Bility and other executive committee members.
The investigation is being conducted by the investigatory chamber of FIFA’s Ethics Committee and early reports have unveiled mind blowing revelations.
Confirming the new development, LFA president Musa Bility called a meeting on Wednesday to inform first and second division clubs that FIFA via its Ethics Committee has sent a three-man delegation led by Jonathan Brown to investigate Liberia’s football body.
Bility further told the clubs that the FA’s Treasurer, Jallah Corvah, had admitted sending fake accounts documentation to FIFA adding that he didn’t sign the said documents.
FIFA auditors have already held over three hours of interviews and meetings at the LFA and this led to the submission from the body’s vice-president, Musa Shannon, that he didn’t know about FIFA’s financial assistance programmes adding that this was exclusively handled by both Corvah and Bility.
LFA general secretary Emmanuel Deah also made the same admission as Musa Shannon to the auditors.
On the other hand, Corvah revealed that the financial assistance paperwork sent to the world’s football body from 2010 was fake and that he warned Bility about issuing illegal documents.
Despite Corvah’s mind blowing revelation, Musa Bility told the clubs that he asked FIFA to suspend their audit while he investigates how his signature was forged.
Bility further stated that he would be untouchable by the audit since it was a compliance audit amidst the forgery of his signature.
