By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Bonita Mersiades, a prominent activist for change in global soccer governance, might be expected to be feeling more than a little vindicated following this week's arrests of high-ranking FIFA officials in Zurich. Mersiades was the head of communications for Australia's bid to host the 2022 World Cup and offered evidence in FIFA's probe into the bidding process for that tournament, which was awarded to Qatar, and the 2018 finals, which went to Russia. Rather than being commended for her courage, Mersiades' reliability as a witness was questioned and her evidence dismissed in a summary of the investigation released by Judge Hans-Joachim Eckert of FIFA's ethics committee six months ago.

FIFA President Blatter arrives for opening ceremony of 65th FIFA Congress in ZurichBy Mike Collett and Brian Homewood ZURICH (Reuters) - World soccer boss Sepp Blatter was expected to be re-elected on Friday, defying growing calls for him to step down in the face of corruption scandals engulfing the sport's governing body. Addressing FIFA delegates at the body's annual Congress in Switzerland, where members will later vote to decide the organization's presidency, Blatter promised more transparency and urged members to remain unified. Blatter also sought to distance himself from the scandal, the biggest crisis FIFA has faced in its 111-year history.

It is the first official statement by Qatar since the arrests of seven FIFA officials earlier this week and the launching of an investigation into the bidding process of the 2018/2022 tournaments.
