Two Senior Chinese Soccer Officials Caught in Sweeping Graft Dragnet
Listen to the full version
What’s new: Two more senior officials of the Chinese Football Association (CFA) have fallen under graft probes, as the country’s anti-corruption crackdown on the sport has now caught a former referee in its dragnet.
Tan Hai, the director of the CFA’s technology department and a former international-level referee, and Qi Jun, director of the CFA’s strategic planning department, are being investigated for alleged “serious violations of discipline and law,” a common euphemism for corruption, according to two one-line statements published by Hubei province graft busters Saturday.
