FIFA delays Chuck Blazer probe

ZURICH --  FIFA has put on hold until next year its investigation of alleged financial corruption by American football official Chuck Blazer.

Chuck Blazer says he has no concerns over the most recent investigation claims
Chuck Blazer has been accused of embezzling at least $21 million.

World football's governing body says lead investigator Robert Torres had found unspecified "circumstances which made it advisable to provisionally suspend" the case.

Blazer, who represented the United States on FIFA's board from 1997 until leaving this year, is accused of embezzling at least $21 million while general secretary of the CONCACAF confederation working alongside disgraced former president Jack Warner.

FIFA's ethics committee suspended Blazer for 90 days in May while it investigated spending and commissions from contracts detailed in an audit of CONCACAF finances.

Blazer's whistleblower role in a 2011 bribery scandal helped FIFA remove Warner and former presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam from their football duties, and ensured Sepp Blatter won re-election.
