And, possibly sensing the chance to rewrite history, Warner added the bizarre claim that: “I have never faced a court or have enquiry against me. Nobody has accused me, I never take money from anybody pocket and I have no allegations of any kind.”
The Trinidad Guardian published Warner’s monologue without contradiction despite the fact that: he is currently under police investigation, a High Court Judge is insisting he be brought to court over his role in millions of missing World Cup revenue, FIFA indicted him as an accessory to bribery last year, he was named in several local multi-million lawsuits over the last two years including a successful $7.5 million action by Doc’s Engineering for breach of contract, he was the target of a national Commission of Inquiry in 1990 over the 19 November 1989 World Cup ticket fiasco and he has several matters before the Integrity Commission.
Perhaps the reporter didn’t hear of those incidents. Or maybe the force is indeed strong with Warner.
Wired868 notes that being unaware of something certainly doesn’t make it untrue.
Warner further distinguished himself as local politics’ “Special One” by officially became the first person to refer to himself in the “fourth person.”
The Chaguanas West MP suggested that people wanted him out of the job as National Security Minister because they are concerned about friends of politicians who are benefitting from illegal enterprise including money laundering.
Wired868 wishes him well in his efforts to apprehend the political financier that allegedly helped a FIFA political candidate to enter Trinidad and Tobago with an undeclared US$1 million in cash.
