Poland’s soccer head faces investigation

The head of Poland’s soccer association will cooperate with

prosecutors who are investigating possible corruption by him.

The investigation comes with Poland to co-host next year’s

European Championship with Ukraine.

The PZPN soccer association says on its website that its

president, Grzegorz Lato, has declared his ”full cooperation”

with state prosecutors and the Sports Ministry.

Sports Minister Joanna Mucha asked prosecutors on Friday to look

into secret video and audio recordings of conversations involving

Lato in 2010. She said the recordings indicated a criminal offense

may have taken place. Lato told Polish media he is innocent of any

wrongdoing.

PZPN officials say the conversation involved plans for the

association’s new headquarters.
