The Swiss Office of the Attorney General (OAG) have been investigating alleged corruption in the bidding processes for both tournaments and has confirmed the number of suspicious incidents it has uncovered has now reached three figures.
“I can confirm that the OAG received so far 103 suspicious financial activity reports regarding the allocation of the Football World Cups in 2018 and 2022,” said a spokesperson to Reuters.
Last month, the number of incidents was revealed as 81 and the amount has now risen.
Organisers for both Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022 have repeatedly denied any allegations of corruption.
Meanwhile, the man appointed as the chairman of FIFA's new reform committee has claimed that outgoing President Sepp Blatter has been unfairly treated.
In an interview with Swiss newspaper La Matin Dimanche, Francois Carrard said:
“There is something unfair in the way he is treated.
“I say that with complete independence.
“We are in the process of pillorying him.
“Unfortunately, it's always like that when somebody stays too long, the negative side gets noticed.
“This man has been unfairly treated.
“And if we talk about corruption, I have the whole U.S proceedings on my table. In the indictment, there is not one word against him.
