Fifa's top judge said football's governing body cannot release in full a controversial report into the bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups for legal reasons. Fifa has faced mounting calls, including from Michael Garcia, the former US federal prosecutor who led the investigation into the bid, for all of the report to be made public. "Publishing the report in full would actually put the Fifa ethics committee and Fifa itself in a very difficult situation legally," Hans-Joachim Eckert, chairman of the governing body's adjudicatory chamber said. We have to respect the personal rights of the people mentioned in the report Fifa's Hans-Joachim Eckert "What is more, we have to respect the personal rights of the people mentioned in the report, which in the case of full publication of the report would in all likelihood not be possible," he said. Eckert said he was preparing a statement which should be released "by mid-November at the latest." The statement would contain "a summary of the main findings, conclusions and recommendations of the report, as well as a brief evaluation", the official said. An intense spotlight has been put on the report following allegations that a former Qatari soccer chief paid national federation chiefs millions of dollars to back Qatar, which won the right to host the 2022 World Cup in a controversial 2010 vote by the Fifa executive committee. Garcia has called on Fifa to be more transparent.
