Six men with ties to world football’s governing body have been listed on INTERPOL’s ‘Red Notice’ on Wednesday.

INTERPOL has issued international alert for two former Fifa executives and four cooperate executives.

The INTERPOL’s ‘Wanted List’ does not serve as international arrest warrant, meaning it cannot press any member nation to arrest a subject on ‘Red Notice.’ But they risk arrest anywhere they travel.

Former Fifa vice-president, Jack Warner, of Trinidad and Tobago and ex-executive committee member Nicolas Leoz of Paraguay, have been arrested in their home counties. Warner has since been released on the basis of exhaustion and Leoz is under house arrest.

Argentinian Alejandro Burzaco and fellow sports marketing businessmen, Hugo and Mariano Jinkis, who together are accused of paying over $100 million in bribes for media and commercial rights to soccer tournaments, are the other men on the list; as well as Brazilian broadcasting businessman Jose Marguiles.

Sepp Blatter announced he was going to resign on Tuesday, few days after winning a fifth term as president of Fifa amid the biggest scandal ever to hit world football’s umbrella body.
