Fifa's ethics committee has said it will complete interviews next week with witnesses over alleged corruption in Qatar's bidding for the 2022 World Cup.
“After months of interviewing witnesses and gathering materials, we intend to complete that phase of our investigation by June 9, 2014, and to submit a report to the Adjudicatory Chamber approximately 6 weeks thereafter," the body said in a statement.
"The report will consider all evidence potentially related to the bidding process, including evidence collected from prior investigations.”
