The latest in the widening Fifa corruption scandal is unbelievable. Germany is reported to have sent Saudi Arabia weapons in exchange for support of their bid to host the 2006 World Cup.
Germany reportedly sent Saudia Arabia a shipment of rocket-propelled grenades in exchange for support of their bid to host the 2006 World Cup.
The allegations are the latest revelations in the widening Fifa scandal. According to reports by the Die Zeit newspaper, then-Chancellor Gerhard Schroder’s government allegedly complied with a request from the German Football Association to send Saudi Arabia arms, in an attempt to steer the Middle Eastern nation away from backing Morocco in the close vote for the world cup host in 2000.
