FIFA is investigating 10 more Caribbean football officials over their alleged roles in a bribery scandal involving former FIFA presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam.

FIFA says it wants to interview the 10 men from six countries and present files to its ethics committee next month.

Former prime minister of Dominica, Patrick John, is among those under suspicion.

FIFA is also investigating Oliver Camps, President of Trinidad and Tobago’s football federation and an ally of disgraced former FIFA vice president Jack Warner.

Bin Hammam is appealing his life ban for offering $40,000 cash bribes in May. Warner resigned to avoid a FIFA investigation.

FIFA committee members Colin Klass and Horace Burrell also were suspended.

The CFU presidential election will be held in Jamaica next month and will see Jamaican Ralph Anthony James going up against Harold Taylor of Trinidad & Tobago.

The 10 officials named by Fifa today were: Raymond Guishard (Anguilla), Damien Hughes (Anguilla), Everton Gonsalves (Antigua and Barbuda), Derrick Gordon (Antigua and Barbuda), Lionel Haven (Bahamas, CFU), Patrick John (Dominica), Philippe White (Dominica), Vincent Cassell (Montserrat), Tandica Hughes (Montserrat), Oliver Camps (Trinidad and Tobago).
