Jerome Valcke former FIFA secretary general was allegedly offered bribes to secure broadcast rights for the 2026 and 2030 World Cup finals
Al-Khelaifi, 43, has been the chairman of Qatar Sports Investiments (QSI) since June 2011, around the same time the investment company acquired Paris Saint-Germain.
While Qatari national Al-Khelaifi is the president of the famed French football club PSG, the statement indicates the alleged offences pertain to his role as the head of sports media group BEIN, which operates on five continents.
The proceedings are connected to an ongoing investigation into former Federation Internationale de Football Association secretary general Jerome Valcke, and relate to the sale of World Cup TV rights to BeInSports, of which Al-Khelaifi is chief executive.
The proceedings relate to an ongoing OAG investigation into Valcke that began in March 2016 and was opened on "suspicion of various acts of criminal mismanagement".
Prosecutors claim that Valcke accepted the bribes from Al-Khelaifi with the intention of awarding media rights to "certain countries" for the World Cups due to be held in 2026 and 2030.
Valcke, who worked for FIFA between 2007 and 2015, is now serving a 10-year ban from football - issued by the FIFA Appeal Committee in June 2016 - after being embroiled in the corruption scandal that hit football's governing body in 2015.
