When the European Championship was assigned to Ukraine and Poland in 2012 UEFA received warnings in an early internal report. A “tipster”, a former official of the Cyprus Football Association, claimed that some of those who voted for Poland / Ukraine should have been paid to do so. UEFA appointed a special investigator, Peter Limacher, who was supposed to meet the “tipster” but in the middle of the investigation he was forced to leave his post. At this point the former president Michel Platini och secretary general Gianni Infantino were in charge of UEFA.
The Swedish Television program Uppdrag granskning has made inquiries about these allegations but UEFA refuses to answer and instead threatens the reporter in the TV program with legal actions if UEFA gets bad credits in this context.
