A world anti-money laundering body has deleted all trace of an alert it issued last week warning that financial institutions had not done enough to police suspicious financial activity by officials at FIFA, football's global governing body.The alert, on the website of the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force, was originally posted on June 16, almost three weeks after U.S. authorities indicted nine current and former FIFA officials and five business executives on a series of corruption charges, including bribery, money laundering and wire fraud.Reuters first learned of the FATF notice from a European official familiar with FIFA investigations, and located it on Saturday through a Google search, though when the search engine on FATF's own website was queried, the FIFA notice did not appear.
