Paraguayan prosecutors sending seized CONMEBOL documents to U.S.

The offices of CONMEBOL were raided by Paraguayan authorities on Thursday.

ASUNCION, Paraguay -- Paraguayan prosecutors say they have started going through the documents seized during a raid of the headquarters of the South American football confederation and will send them to the U.S., which is leading a probe on corruption in football.

The U.S. Justice Department last year indicted several football officials and businessmen in an alleged scheme that involved receiving bribes for commercial rights to Copa America and other tournaments.

The men charged include the three last presidents of the CONMEBOL confederation, which has its offices in Asuncion, Paraguay.

Prosecutor Hernan Galeano said authorities seized contracts dating from 1991 to 2015 during Thursday's raid.

"The main issues are the contracts between CONMEBOL and the companies that owned the marketing rights to Copa Libertadores and Copa America," Galeano said Friday.
