Fifa has asked for an explanation from Canover Watson, a member of the body’s financial watchdog, after he was arrested on suspicion of corruption and money-laundering in the Cayman Islands.

Watson, one of eight members of Fifa’s audit and compliance committee and a vice-president of the Caribbean Football Union, has denied the charges and has been released on bail.

“In agreement with the ethics committee we have asked Canover Watson whether he can share with the audit and compliance committee any additional information,” said Domenico Scala, head of the committee. “Once we have more information we will consider appropriate measures.”

The Fifa committee is charged with ensuring the “completeness and reliability of the financial accounting” of world football’s governing body.
