Edition of Der Spiegel published the results of the investigation, which prove that FIFA shortly before the start of the 2018 world Cup in Russia is not allowed to conduct independent anti-doping investigation.
In August 2017, a prominent lawyer and expert Richard McLaren had to attend a meeting of FIFA in Zurich. In Switzerland he planned to meet with Maria Rojas – chair of the ethics Committee of FIFA.

One of the subjects of discussion at the meeting was to focus on the issue of doping in Russian football. In particular, one of the main defendants in the investigation were the head of the Russian football Union Vitaly Mutko, reports Der Spiegel, citing Football Leaks.
However, the meeting never took place because Roxas ignored the event. Later she contacted McLaren and said that the issue of doping is now engaged in the anti-doping Agency (WADA) and FIFA.
In the end, time was lost – no investigation before the 2018 world Cup was not held. According to McLaren, it is understood that FIFA was not going to investigate the situation.
Recall that McLaren is known for his work on the investigation of doping, in particular, the football team of Russia.
