Two of the men, former FIFA vice president Jack Warner of Trinidad and former executive committee member Nicolas Leoz of Paraguay, have been arrested in their home counties.
Warner has since been released and Leoz is under house arrest.

Others listed were Argentinians Alejandro Burzaco and brothers Hugo and Mariano Jinkis, who together are accused of paying more than 100 million US dollars in bribes for media and commercial rights to soccer tournaments; and Jose Margulies, a Brazilian broadcast executive.

Meanwhile former 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee Members pulled out of a press conference called to address allegations of a 10-million US dollar bribe being paid by the SA Government to Fifa in return for securing the soccer World Cup.
