London, July 12 : The court documents have revealed that collapsed marketing company ISL paid former FIFA president Joao Havelange huge sums in bribes.
Switzerland's supreme court ordered the release of the documents and to identify which senior officials took millions of dollars in payments from ISL, FIFA's marketing partner, until it went bankrupt in 2001.
Havelange received at least 1.5m Swiss francs (£986,000) and executive committee member Ricardo Teixeira at least 12.74m SFr (£8.4m).
The Swiss prosecutor's report, published by Fifa, reveals the pair may have received up to 21.9m SFr (£14.4m).
They are the only two Fifa officials named in the report, The BBC reports.
The papers were released to five media organisations, including the BBC, detailing the court settlement, which closed a criminal probe of the ISL case in May 2010.
The documents concerning Havelange also revealed that officials repaid 5.5m Swiss francs (£3.6m) to end the prosecution office''s investigation on condition their identities remain secret.
Havelange was Fifa president for 24 years before being succeeded by Blatter in 1998.
He resigned his 48-year International Olympic Commitee membership, citing health reasons, in December, days before the Olympic body was due to sanction him following its own investigation into wrongdoing connected to ISL. (ANI)
