GENEVA – Paris Saint-Germain chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi and FIFA’s disgraced former secretary-general Jerome Valcke were being questioned on Monday by Swiss prosecutors probing alleged corruption in the attribution of soccer broadcasting rights.

The Swiss attorney general’s office (OAG) described the interrogations as “final examination hearings” in the criminal investigations opened in March 2017.

Al-Khelaifi, who is also the boss of Qatari television channel BeIN Sports, is suspected of giving inappropriate gifts to Valcke – including rent-free access to a luxury property – in order to secure broadcast rights to prestigious events, including the World Cup.
