FIFA Director of Communications Markus Siegler:

‘If you do not stop now, then we call the security and we put you out.’

FIFA Press conference, Zurich, Tuesday, 11 April 2006

Jack Warner, Trinidad Express 12 December 2004

‘Lying and deception and bad faith are standard operating procedure at FIFA.’

Adam C. Silverstein, a lawyer for MasterCard in their successful action against FIFA, New York, December 1, 2006

‘FIFA is a healthy, clean and transparent organisation with nothing to hide. There is huge public interest in FIFA, therefore we have to be as transparent as possible. We will try to communicate in a more open way so the world can believe us and be proud of their federation.’

Here’s Hargitay’s dirty tricks website, the abi company.


It is a hilarious collection of fantasy, half-truths and non-existent characters.




Click to find him on the page called Profiles. He is the 50-year-old Swiss-Hungarian. Many of his claims are blatant lies.


Hargitay creates his websites to ensnare specific target clients.  Who was he after in 2002? Was it the president of FIFA?
