The International Ice Hockey Federation is investigating allegations of IIHF president Rene Fasel accepting kickbacks involving the IIHF’s marketing partner and Fasel’s childhood friend.
The Zurich daily SonntagsZeitung reported Sunday that Fasel benefited financially from marketing contracts awarded to Infront, which handles the television and marketing rights to the world hockey championship until 2017.
The newspaper alleged that Infront paid 400,000 Swiss francs ($412,000 Cdn.) in fees to company run by a childhood friend of Fasel identified as “Y.S.”
The newspaper quoted “Y.S.” as saying the only reason his company was successful was because of his relationship with Fasel.
