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?”
