Klass has been summoned by FIFA to answer charges relating to $40,000 in bribes allegedly offered by former presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam. His date with the committee comes as a FIFA’s appeals panel upheld bin Hammam’s life ban last week.
Klass, a member of FIFA’s beach soccer committee, is a longtime ally of former FIFA vice president Jack Warner.
He was provisionally suspended as head of the Guyana football federation last month pending a full investigation by former FBI director Louis Freeh’s agency.
Another 15 Caribbean officials under investigation are awaiting hearing dates.
