Daryan allegedly turns FBI songbird; Mr Live Wire has a request

It seems that Daryan Warner’s ankles were not as captivating as CCN suggested.

Reuters investigative journalist Mark Hosenball alleged today that the elder son of National Security Minister Jack Warner has been assisting the FBI in the United States since late last year in two football related matters that could involve the United National Congress (UNC) chairman.

The matters being probed are supposedly payments between Warner, as Caribbean Football Union (CFU) president, and his CONCACAF general secretary Chuck Blazer as well as the Mohamed Bin Hammam bribery scandal, which occurred at the Port of Spain Hyatt and prompted Warner’s resignation from FIFA.

The Internal Revenue Service is said to be involved too and looking into potential violations of U.S. tax laws and anti-fraud statutes, including laws prohibiting wire fraud and mail fraud.

“It’s shaping up like a major case,” a U.S. official familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar met with the FBI chief and US Attorney General Eric Holder last month at a CARICOM conference in Haiti

Warner skipped the get-together on the grounds that he was too busy fighting crime in Trinidad.

Did he miss anything interesting?

His son, Daryan, who apparently does not have the option of sidestepping dates with the FBI, might know. The Prime Minister continues to insist on her own ignorance; and she has had lots of practice at it.

Is Daryan really singing like a bird in Miami? If so, Mr Live Wire would like to make a request.

Do you know: “Hit the road, Jack?”

  1. “Hit the road, Jack” lol Good one! Perhaps when he gets voted out or re-voted in (not putting anything past those people in Chag West) he will have time, since he cannot claim to be fighting crime anymore….yeah right! He will always have an excuse to avoid tough questions.

  2. I can’t verify that, Archer. Maybe you’re right. But I’ve never seen reason not to give Jennings the benefit of the doubt. Journalists don’t always get documents from the most scrupulous sources and sometimes the people that approach you have an agenda.
    The question is: has he remained impartial and faithful to the truth? I don’t think his story suggested that he has gone soft on Mr Warner.
    If he got damning evidence on Blazer and hid it so as to keep the spotlight on Warner, I think that would have been unethical.

  3. Please don’t misunderstand but I think what Jennings did is the most despicable thing a supposed journalist can ever do. He got a couple of documents directly from Jack Warner, put them in an envelope and mailed them to the FBI. Then he wrote a “NEWS” story saying that “the FBII is looking at some documents related to Chuck Blazer”. It was disgraceful. and what’s worse he did exactly what Jack wanted him to do to deflect some heat off of himself. Now to be clear I believe Blazer has a lot to answer for, but that story was shamefully bogus and, I believe, basically cost Andrew Jennings his career.

  4. I have included discussions between the FBI and Andrew Jennings as a point of reference Archer.

  5. The writer makes the Blazer connection, but he has no quotes or evidence to back it up. Your summary takes what he said in that regard a ways farther than he himself does. This investigation is about Jack Warner.

  6. I see Mr. Warner still has that tie 🙂

    I remember that news conference. It was my early days in T&T as a practicing journalist here.

  7. ah wonder if is because ah all ah the “singing” that Ryan report talk bout Soca?..

  8. I hear he singing so much is all the different parts of the choir he doing.
