Zurich business weekly Handelszeitung published a letter overnight from canton (state) Zug court saying the Swiss court document naming the officials can be released, although the ruling is open to appeal within 30 days.

The document details a settlement in June 2010 in the 10-year-old scandal over alleged payments made by the ISL marketing agency before its 2001 collapse with debts of $295 million.

It reportedly implicates former FIFA President Joao Havelange and Ricardo Teixeira, the Brazil 2014 World Cup organising committee president.
