The things they say...

‘Neither FIFA nor its President have anything to hide, nor do they wish to.’

Blatter press release, 28 January, 2003

BBC Panorama Reporter Andy Davies:

‘A one million franc bribe … is it not correct that Mr Blatter asked that it be moved to the FIFA official who was named on the payment slip?’

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

‘I am deputy chairman of the finance committee of FIFA. I oversee a budget of US$2 billion and I have never seen one iota of corruption.’

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

‘I do not believe a Jew can ever be a referee at that level (Argentine Premier League) because it’s hard work and, you know, Jews don’t like hard work.’

FIFA senior vice-president and chair of Finance Committee, Julio Grondona, 5 July 2003. Buenos Aires

‘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.’

Hargitay and his bully boys threaten
free speech . . . again



By Andrew Jennings


Thursday December 16, 2010


Peter Hargitay, the bogus World Cup bidding ‘consultant’ who took Australian taxpayers for suckers is using his bully-boy lawyer Rod Christie-Miller to try and stifle reporting about his ‘colourful’ past.


Bamboozled Aussies shelled out a big bag of dollars for the Swiss-Hungarian conman – who got them only one vote from FIFA’s 22 dodgy bosses.


The Australian bid team of billionaire Frank Lowy (is there a Westfield shopping mall near you?) big bumbling Ben Buckley and out of his depth press briefer Rod Allen forgot to tell local reporters that their ‘strategist’ Hargitay had previously got the bum’s rush from England’s Bid team after he demanded £4 million – with no receipts – claiming he’d use it to bribe FIFA crooks.


Lasana Liburd, that fine reporter from Trinidad, watched the stumbling performance of the visiting England 2018 bid team as they attempted to get the vote of FIFA’s top ticket tout Jack Warner. In their best colonial masters style they snubbed Liburd’s reasonable questions – making asses of themselves.




Liburd had observed Hargitay in Trinidad advising Warner how to sabotage the English campaign. But when Liburd wrote about the debt-dodger  - and his seven-month vacation in a Miami jail - for the highly-respected Play the Game website in Denmark, the synthetic wrath of professional intimidators Schillings was unleashed on him.


They trotted out their long past-its-sell-by-date claim that Hargitay is a ‘well-regarded and successful businessman.’ Knowing that won’t stand up to scrutiny Schillings lurched off the planet into irrelevant screeching about me (Jennings) and my ‘false, one-sided and damaging assaults on our client in the past.’ Quite what I have to do with Liburd’s elegant reporting is not made clear.


And a few days later . . . they’re at it again! As I discovered last year, Schillings never send one letter when, presumably, two will earn them twice as much.




Despite Schillings’ violent language the Liburd article is here and remains on the Play the Game website. Readers are invited to copy it and upload world-wide.


The buggers won’t ever sue me – or anybody else. They know – and I know – and Peter Liar knows – that he can never risk going in the witness box because inevitably, while the world giggled, he’d struggle not to perjure himself.


He’d also be revealed as a demented jerk writing increasingly puerile and abusive letters to Australian and British reporters who question his supposed expertise.  Hardly the smooth PR and ‘crisis manager’ he markets himself as.


Few judges would want to wade through Hargitay’s self-regarding, semi-literate dementia, all hung around his world view that ‘Mine is bigger than yours’ – and all copied to the increasingly rewarded Rod Christie-Miller.


Back to the future: Where have the Aussie tax dollars gone? Perhaps to the conman’s Cyprus bank account before being suit-cased to another of his other offshore accounts.


For sure they won’t go to repay a US$2 million debt to a Swiss investor in one of his failed enterprises. The only business ‘success’ that Hargitay can claim is avoiding repaying that debt for more than a decade, even going so far as fibbing to a court that he lived outside its jurisdiction.


Schillings claim in their first revelatory letter, ‘Our client has substantial investments.’ So he could pay his debts if he wanted.


BUNG NOTE: The message is getting through in Australia about Hargitay. Here’s columnist Peter FitzSimons in Saturday’s Sydney Morning Herald.


Why did we pay an arrogant, presumptuous dickhead like him anything at all? Half-a-million dollars and we get one vote?
