Bolivia ex-football chief says will cooperate with FIFA probe

Osuna is among 16 South American football officials charged last week.

La Paz: The former treasurer of South America`s football federation promised Sunday to cooperate with a massive probe into corruption at FIFA.

Romer Osuna, 72, who also once headed Bolivia`s football federation, promised to work with investigators leading the international probe that already has implicated several Latin American officials.

"I am ready to appear before the justice system," the former CONMEBOL treasurer said in a statement published in Bolivian newspapers. 

"The American authorities can subpoena me at their convenience, be it in the United States or Bolivia."

Osuna is among 16 South American football officials charged last week in the scandal that first exploded last May at the world football`s governing body.

Two of the officials, Paraguayan Juan Angel Napout and Honduran Alfredo Hawit, were arrested in a dawn raid on a Zurich hotel, while indictments have been issued for the others.
