A good majority of FIFA's executive committee wants the truth to come out about bribery allegations against Qatar despite president Sepp Blatter's attempt to dismiss them as racist and discriminatory, former vice president Junji Ogura said Tuesday.

Blatter, as well as the African confederation, has hit out at the British press which has reported that former Asian Football Confederation president Mohamed bin Hammam bribed Asian and African officials to help Qatar secure the 2022 World Cup hosting rights.

But Ogura, who was on the FIFA executive committee from 2002 to 2011 when bin Hammam was on board, understands that most members of the current executive committee do not think the stories are necessarily a bad thing if they reveal what actually occurred behind the scenes — and under the table.
