FIFA has backed its reform process and insists it’s carrying out many recommended changes aimed at more financial transparency, although president Sepp Blatter’s annual salary is still a secret.

Domenico Scala, a Swiss industrialist brought in to be FIFA’s top financial watchdog and lead the new audit and compliance committee, said on Wednesday he knows what Blatter makes “but it is not my role to disclose.” Blatter has reportedly referred questions over his earnings and bonuses to Scala.

Transparency regarding salaries of high-ranking officials was one recommendation of law professor Mark Pieth’s reform panel after it was brought in by FIFA following scandals involving financial misconduct.

FIFA will not address reforms about revealing the earnings of top officials at this week’s congress in Mauritius.
