Jack Warner extradition case adjourned

28 July 2015, 08:07

Port of Spain - The extradition case against scandal-tainted former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner was adjourned for one month here on Monday after state and defence lawyers requested more time to study US corruption allegations.

Warner, a former chief of the governing body for football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF), is battling against extradition to the United States after being named in the FIFA corruption probe rocking world football.

The 72-year-old appeared at Port-of-Spain Magistrates court in the Trinidadian capital on Monday as government and defense lawyers discussed the proceedings.

The case was adjourned until August 28 when a date for the start of the full extradition case will be set.

Warner said outside court he has instructed his team to file for a judicial review of the extradition proceedings on the grounds that Trinidad Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar's government had "prosecuted" the case against him and made it impossible for him to get a fair trial.

Warner was arrested by Trinidad authorities after the United States indicted him and 13 other football officials and marketing executives for corruption.

He has claimed that the US case against him is politically motivated and that America is trying to exact revenge because it lost out to Qatar in the vote to host the 2022 World Cup.
