US Justice Dept confirms: Warner charged; Daryan, Daryll pleaded guilty

The United States Department of Justice confirmed this morning that Chaguanas West MP and ex-FIFA vice president Jack Warner is among 14 persons charged for racketeering.

According to a statement by the Department of Justice, the defendants and their co-conspirators—nine of whom were FIFA officials—“corrupted the enterprise by engaging in various criminal activities, including fraud, bribery and money laundering.”

“All told, the soccer officials are charged with conspiring to solicit and receive well over US$150 (TT$945) million in bribes and kickbacks,” stated the Department of Justice, “in exchange for their official support of the sports marketing executives who agreed to make the unlawful payments.

“Most of the schemes alleged in the indictment relate to the solicitation and receipt of bribes and kickbacks by soccer officials from sports marketing executives in connection with the commercialization of the media and marketing rights associated with various soccer matches and tournaments.”

Switzerland law officials swooped down on Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich at 6 am and arrested several FIFA officials, who were preparing for the FIFA presidential election on Friday.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter was not among the men detained.

CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb was believed to have been charged while, according to Trinidad and Tobago Attorney General Gavin Nicholas, the US began the extradition process for Warner arrest in Trinidad.

The Department of Justice revealed that Darryl Warner, the son of defendant Jack Warner and a former FIFA development officer, waived indictment and pleaded guilty on 15 July 2013 to a two-count information charging him with wire fraud and the structuring of financial transactions.

Daryan Warner, the eldest son of Jack Warner, waived indictment and pleaded guilty on 25 October 2013 to a three-count information charging him with wire fraud conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy and the structuring of financial transactions.

Daryan forfeited over US$1.1 (TT$6.9) million around the time of his plea and agreed to pay a second forfeiture money judgment at the time of sentencing.

The following is the full statement from the United States Department of Justice:

Nine FIFA Officials and Five Corporate Executives Indicted for Racketeering Conspiracy and Corruption:

The Defendants Include Two Current FIFA Vice Presidents and the Current and Former Presidents of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF); Seven Defendants Arrested Overseas; Guilty Pleas for Four Individual Defendants and Two Corporate Defendants Also Unsealed

A 47-count indictment was unsealed early this morning in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, charging 14 defendants with racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies, among other offenses, in connection with the defendants’ participation in a 24-year scheme to enrich themselves through the corruption of international soccer.

The guilty pleas of four individual defendants and two corporate defendants were also unsealed today.

The defendants charged in the indictment include high-ranking officials of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the organization responsible for the regulation and promotion of soccer worldwide, as well as leading officials of other soccer governing bodies that operate under the FIFA umbrella.

Jeffrey Webb and Jack Warner – the current and former presidents of CONCACAF, the continental confederation under FIFA headquartered in the United States – are among the soccer officials charged with racketeering and bribery offenses.

The defendants also include U.S. and South American sports marketing executives who are alleged to have systematically paid and agreed to pay well over US$150 (TT$945) million in bribes and kickbacks to obtain lucrative media and marketing rights to international soccer tournaments.

The charges were announced by Attorney General Loretta E Lynch, Acting US Attorney Kelly T Currie of the Eastern District of New York, Director James B. Comey of the FBI, Assistant Director in Charge Diego W Rodriguez of the FBI’s New York Field Office, Chief Richard Weber of the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) and Special Agent in Charge Erick Martinez of the IRS-CI’s Los Angeles Field Office.

Also earlier this morning, Swiss authorities in Zurich arrested seven of the defendants charged in the indictment, the defendants Jeffrey Webb, Eduardo Li, Julio Rocha, Costas Takkas, Eugenio Figueredo, Rafael Esquivel and José Maria Marin, at the request of the United States.  Also this morning, a search warrant is being executed at CONCACAF headquarters in Miami, Florida.

The guilty pleas of the four individual and two corporate defendants that were also unsealed today include the guilty pleas of Charles Blazer, the long-serving former general secretary of CONCACAF and former US representative on the FIFA executive committee; José Hawilla, the owner and founder of the Traffic Group, a multinational sports marketing conglomerate headquartered in Brazil; and two of Hawilla’s companies, Traffic Sports International Inc. and Traffic Sports USA Inc., which is based in Florida.

“The indictment alleges corruption that is rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted both abroad and here in the United States,” said Attorney General Lynch.  “It spans at least two generations of soccer officials who, as alleged, have abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks. And it has profoundly harmed a multitude of victims, from the youth leagues and developing countries that should benefit from the revenue generated by the commercial rights these organizations hold, to the fans at home and throughout the world whose support for the game makes those rights valuable.

“Today’s action makes clear that this Department of Justice intends to end any such corrupt practices, to root out misconduct, and to bring wrongdoers to justice – and we look forward to continuing to work with other countries in this effort.”

Attorney General Lynch extended her grateful appreciation to the authorities of the government of Switzerland, as well as several other international partners, for their outstanding assistance in this investigation.

“Today’s announcement should send a message that enough is enough,” said Acting US Attorney Currie.  “After decades of what the indictment alleges to be brazen corruption, organized international soccer needs a new start – a new chance for its governing institutions to provide honest oversight and support of a sport that is beloved across the world, increasingly so here in the United States.

“Let me be clear: this indictment is not the final chapter in our investigation.”

Acting US Attorney Currie extended his thanks to the agents, analysts and other investigative personnel with the FBI New York Eurasian Joint Organized Crime Squad and the IRS-CI Los Angeles Field Office, as well as their colleagues abroad, for their tremendous effort in this case.

“As charged in the indictment, the defendants fostered a culture of corruption and greed that created an uneven playing field for the biggest sport in the world,” said Director Comey.  “Undisclosed and illegal payments, kickbacks, and bribes became a way of doing business at FIFA.  I want to commend the investigators and prosecutors around the world who have pursued this case so diligently, for so many years.”

“When leaders in an organization resort to cheating the very members that they are supposed to represent, they must be held accountable,” said Chief Weber.  “Corruption, tax evasion and money laundering are certainly not the cornerstones of any successful business. Whether you call it soccer or football, the fans, players and sponsors around the world who love this game should not have to worry about officials corrupting their sport.

“This case isn’t about soccer, it is about fairness and following the law.  IRS-CI will continue to investigate financial crimes and follow the money wherever it may lead around the world, leveling the playing field for those who obey the law.”

The charges in the indictment are merely allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The Enterprise

FIFA is composed of 209 member associations, each representing organized soccer in a particular nation or territory, including the United States and four of its overseas territories.  FIFA also recognizes six continental confederations that assist it in governing soccer in different regions of the world.

The US Soccer Federation is one of 41 member associations of the confederation known as CONCACAF, which has been headquartered in the United States throughout the period charged in the indictment.  The South American confederation, called CONMEBOL, is also a focus of the indictment.

As alleged in the indictment, FIFA and its six continental confederations, together with affiliated regional federations, national member associations and sports marketing companies, constitute an enterprise of legal entities associated in fact for purposes of the federal racketeering laws.  The principal – and entirely legitimate – purpose of the enterprise is to regulate and promote the sport of soccer worldwide.

As alleged in the indictment, one key way the enterprise derives revenue is to commercialize the media and marketing rights associated with soccer events and tournaments.  The organizing entity that owns those rights – as FIFA and CONCACAF do with respect to the World Cup and Gold Cup, their respective flagship tournaments – sells them to sports marketing companies, often through multi-year contracts covering multiple editions of the tournaments.

The sports marketing companies, in turn, sell the rights downstream to TV and radio broadcast networks, major corporate sponsors and other sub-licensees who want to broadcast the matches or promote their brands.

The revenue generated from these contracts is substantial: according to FIFA, 70% of its US$5.7 (TT$35.9) billion in total revenues between 2011 and 2014 was attributable to the sale of TV and marketing rights to the 2014 World Cup.

The Racketeering Conspiracy

The indictment alleges that, between 1991 and the present, the defendants and their co-conspirators corrupted the enterprise by engaging in various criminal activities, including fraud, bribery and money laundering.

Two generations of soccer officials abused their positions of trust for personal gain, frequently through an alliance with unscrupulous sports marketing executives who shut out competitors and kept highly lucrative contracts for themselves through the systematic payment of bribes and kickbacks.

All told, the soccer officials are charged with conspiring to solicit and receive well over US$150 (TT$945) million in bribes and kickbacks in exchange for their official support of the sports marketing executives who agreed to make the unlawful payments.

Most of the schemes alleged in the indictment relate to the solicitation and receipt of bribes and kickbacks by soccer officials from sports marketing executives in connection with the commercialization of the media and marketing rights associated with various soccer matches and tournaments, including FIFA World Cup qualifiers in the CONCACAF region, the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the CONCACAF Champions League, the jointly organized CONMEBOL/CONCACAF Copa América Centenario, the CONMEBOL Copa América, the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores and the Copa do Brasil, which is organized by the Brazilian national soccer federation (CBF).

Other alleged schemes relate to the payment and receipt of bribes and kickbacks in connection with the sponsorship of CBF by a major US sportswear company, the selection of the host country for the 2010 World Cup and the 2011 FIFA presidential election.

The Indicted Defendants

  17. FIFA President Sepp Blatter, facing criticism before a re-election vote, says “more bad news may follow” after U.S. authorities indicted 14 people in a corruption scandal at soccer’s governing body.

    “We, or I, cannot monitor everyone all of the time,” Blatter said at the opening of FIFA’s 65th Congress in Switzerland. “It is necessary to begin to restore trust in our organization. Let this be the turning point.”

    A spokesman for the attorney general’s office in Switzerland, where the bids for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups are under investigation, told CNN that Blatter would be interviewed if needed.

  24. I know.
    The T&T Fraud Squad is essentially a warrant execution agency for legitimate foreign law enforcement organizations.

    The decline of Trinidad and Tobago seems to have no bounds!

  25. Steups Vernal, they going to sit there and pat themselves on the back for executing an arrest warrant that their own abilities couldn’t produce. LOL. Ridiculous.

  26. “…..don’t you know, everyone is innocent in here….”
    Shawshank Redemption….☺☺

  27. He coming out this morning. He say he innocent.

  28. Yeah. Took a bake and shark for him.

  29. David!!! Yuh went and visit yuh boy last night??

  30. Yeah. Jack and Honorable doh belong in the same sentence…..

  31. If local authorities want to look as if they are capable of doing their jobs, they might want to start moving in on this supermarket chain that allegedly laundered some of this money.

  32. The Honourable thing to do is to resign as MP but they don’t follow convention in Trinidad

  33. That too. He hasn’t been convicted of a crime yet and once he makes bail, he can go to parliament until whenever it is dissolved.

  34. No Eko. An arrest doesnt mean he stops being MP.

  35. Too late for that…. We are an election year anyway.

  36. Jack to resign as Chaguanas West MP?

  37. How Kamla has disgraced T&T international image with her varied appointments of Jack Warner since 2010
    American news media has stated “Warner, a member of the Trinidad Parliament and a some-time stand in for nation’s prime minister surrendered there on Wed on an US issued federal warrant. He also previously served as the country’s national security minister.”

  38. He who controls FIFA controls the money.

  39. Came across this article, NYTIMES, read around the 8th paragraph… “Despite the broad nature of the charges, the case itself arrived at the Justice Department as something of a surprise. The four-year F.B.I. investigation grew out of an unrelated inquiry into aspects of Russian organized crime by the Eurasian Joint Organized Crime Task Force in the F.B.I.’s New York office, according to people with knowledge of the case’s origins. Authorities soon realized the potential scope of an investigation into the sporting world’s most powerful, secretive organization.”… http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/05/28/sports/soccer/fifa-officials-arrested-on-corruption-charges-blatter-isnt-among-them.html?_r=0&referrer=

  40. ah isn’t that nice and thoughtful not to throw the old man in there with the general population… but he should have plenty admirers there anyways….

  41. he already studying who of he friends in the middle east he can call for a replacement Passport with no extradition treaty

  42. Ent Andreas? I said earlier that the amount was pocket change TTD OR USD

  43. FACT: The World Cup LOC seldom turns a direct profit. The LOC makes $ from the same rackets Warner et al are charged for. FIFA makes the $$

  44. yeah but he still will be able to pay dat easy…. Ravi

  45. I would be glad if it was 2.5m USD

  46. Yes I saw about eight names and faces on NBC Nightly News earlier.
    Check their website.

  47. I wonder if there are any updates on the others who like Jack going through proceedings like this today.

    And up to now no names call yet.

  48. Ok Nicole, thanks. But i hope these 2 dont represent the state in the extradition case.

  49. He didn’t say that. Doe lie.

  50. Yup! And that may very-well be revealed before the general election

  51. Yep and the U.S. authorities will be tracking the money

  52. One of the banana reporters, a man, after Jack leave the court and was escorted to a police car ask Jack how he feeling yes. LOL.

  53. Furthermore Greer Cave, Jack Warner laundered illegally gotten money through the party in return for a position of power in the form of campaign financing.

  54. Spending money on successive UNC campaigns Greer Greer Cave

  55. The govt is rejoicing over Jack’s and the ILP apparent demise. I wonder if they realise that they can also face some backlash from this? The period that he’s under investigation for is 1990 – 2011, where was Jack during this time???

  56. Well on the bright side, at least there won’t be another Cabinet reshuffle..

  57. His two sons plead guilty and Warner really want us to believe he is innocent?

  58. Sometime ago Lasana Liburd said that the 40 people going g up for ILP must be crazy to lose their deposit. I guess the 41 seats JW was speaking of representing was behind bars.

  59. Savitri Maharaj..just read a release from the TTPS…it was actually Pamela Elder SC that appeared for the state

  60. He’s on his way out…is just a matter of when

  67. Section 34 will come to the fore again as Ish and Steve names will start calling again. It seems that everytime this Govt seems to have had a “victory” something happens to make it an illusion

  68. Yeah hope his wife put some money in his commissary account so he can buy some thermal undershirts for the jump suits and fresh tube socks and underwear cause u only get ur orange jumpsuit, one pair of socks and orange rubber shoes, along with ur rubber spork and rubber cup, when u go to Jail, cause Jail does be freezing cold

  69. Aye!!!! Look David CB Smith surface!! David, you ok? I know you are in real pain this evening. But doh worry, yuh boy Jack does look good in orange too!

  70. Look at the crooks the state appointed to prosecute this matter – Jagdeo Singh, Gerald Ramdeen, JW sure to win he case. Read David West testimony they have a history of selling out

  71. Ok. . . .let’s put this in perspective. Yesterday was yesterday and today os today. Right?

  72. You don’t read Winnie the Pooh?

  73. See what I say…classic Eeyore from David CB Smith

  74. I am not surprised however that PP loyalists are turning this into a PNM/ Rowley story

  75. She have a softer heart than Rowley.

  76. David she won’t gloat because he was part of the government and her cabinet. That means that she hired a crook. She won’t want ppl connecting those dots

  77. Kams should worry if the UNC was a recipient of some of the laundered money, worse yet if JW said they knew and they get added as co-conspirators

  78. David, in her greed for power she has done worse. As such, tactically she is weak. She desperately needs a punch

  79. Kamla like she does only hire crooks into she government

  80. Just wish he coulda take Kamla and the rest of the crooks with him!

  81. I doe think she will gloat about Jack misfortune. She not like Rowley.

    Rowley yes. He woulda gloat.

  82. Mel the political chess game now start. Jack is history. I await Kamla’s next move. She will likely try to leverage on Jacks misfortune. But she has been poor at tactics.

  83. Yeah Mel. I must shed a tear for mih boy. Poor ting.
    It look like his luck run out.

  84. yuh never read Winne the Pooh as a young tyke?

  85. David CB Smith can’t help but form d Eeyore eh!!!

  86. Seems his close close friend Kamsie leggo he hand…

  87. So his recent coalition partner Rowley and the PNM crew not going to help him? You mean after all he do for them they just going to leave him high and dry to hang?

  88. That FIFA release is a useless pile of rubbish. Steups.

    Has anyone here read the CONCACAF report on the COE? Damning report that had no consequences whatsoever.

  89. Poor fella was just in court for Anand sue yes.

    But now Anand sue looking like small ting.

  90. His boys dead as a nit. But I still holding strong to Jack go beat it.

    That is my final answer.

  91. Beware of attorneys with cocoa in the sun

  92. Machel sing about David CB Smith boy….Pardnas straight to d end

  93. It hard to believe he not going to beat it.
    I mean….Is Jack.

  94. David, i doubt. Quite possible he may be the fall guy. welcome to international politics.

  95. David!!!! Ah boy yuh going down fighting…..ah like yuh spirit. Yuh like the violin players on de Titanic….
    Good to see you though. Was worried for a while there….

  96. So Aunty Kams ain’t give him the same deal Ish and Steve got to escape extradition?

  97. ok….so latest is he has surrendered to the Fraud Squad

  98. Anybody else besides me feel that Jack go beat this charge?

  99. a police warrant is out for his arrest. unconfirmed word is that he cannot be found

  100. Wait and see how much of that laundered money went into the UNC finances, that should come out in court

  101. It looks Lasana busy writin the Nxt instalment

  102. I feel Jack go give them plenty horrors to be extradited.
    He might pull an Ish and Steve.

  103. Marsha the U.S. is capable of plucking Steve and Ish out of Trinidad anytime they want before even their family members are aware of what has happened. About 4 Americans have served time for the Piarco kickback matter. Ish and Steve can hide in the deepest hole, they are going make ah jail.

  104. And he was giving interviews this morning? Sure thing he’s on his way to Caracas by now. Check the Lakankaria cremation site for traces of him

  105. Hahahaha and the game is where in the world is Waldo begins

  106. Will the then government turn a blind eye when that’s happening Malcolm? Cause that’s the only way that might happened. Look how many hours it took the U.S. to contact the AG who in turned within a coup,e of hours found available judges and an empty court house to sit during this proceeding at 2:30pm today

  107. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ish and Steve are forcibly taken out of T&T by U.S. authorities before the end of this year.

  108. does Rolex make ankle monitors?

  109. Better seize he passport and put a crane and chain on he ankle

  110. When one does wrong and it is persistent it inevitably comes back to bite you.

  111. This has nothing to do with the president, it has everything to do with the ambition of this case’s investigators and prosecutors.

    Men looking to move up in the world of criminal investigations and prosecutions.

  112. Aye investigation started after the world cup cities were announced before that even Obama met with Jack

  113. Ig you guys really believe that you have no idea how the United States justice system works.

    The only way for Federal investigators and prosecutors to achieve their professional ambitions is to crack open high profile cases and convict high profile offenders………..that’s what gets you national recognition and makes your name a household name.

    The Mafia has been decimated, so where is an enterprising young prosecutor/investigator to go in search of high stakes racketeers?
    …………………….Ahhhh Fifa, that’s where!

  114. So when is Trinidad gonna Arrest Mr Warner ? They too Greedy and crooked smh.

  115. if jack did give them and england the world cup none of this would have been unearthed

  116. I keep wondering if all the blocks started falling down when Jack Warner gave the Duke of Cambridge Prince William a rolly polly, making him believe he had Jack’s votes for England to hold the world cup and then voted against England! Hmmmm….. real money passed for Jack to be unfaithful to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Karma is a real b…. yes!

  117. Guess Mr Live wire could claim ”vindication” for all his efforts over the years.

  118. Attorney General Garvin Nicholas has confirmed that he met with authorities from United States this morning who are in Trinidad to extradite Jack Warner on charges of racketeering and corruption.
    See article: http://bit.ly/1cZuoVQ

  119. APB for David CB Smith!!! All yuh check and make sure he ok!

  120. Bernie Madoff got 150 years. Allen Stanford got 110 years.
    This ent Trinidad where white collar crime is concerned.
    Might be a culture shock for ole Jack-o.

  121. RICO may as well be a death sentence because you will never see daylight again.

  122. Considering its corruption and racketeering by a group, u think the Feds would charge them under RICO? Thats a life sentence if that happens

  123. David Bernstein , Former Chairman of English Football Assocation “The extent of the charges are quite incredible, after two decades of investigations” (being interviewed on BBC now). “Today could not been more damaging except that Sepp Blatter is not involved in the charges.” Shock to see Jeffrey Webb involved in this as he is a new VP. The extent of what we heard to day took my by surprise.” “

  124. Andrew Jennings only? Lasana Liburd as well!

  125. you could imagine Andrew Jennings right now?

  126. So they cross the Rubicon with Jack then.

  127. You’re mistaking what is happening April. This is not a FIFA investigation. This is an investigation into a corrupt company on its shores that cheated the taxman out of millions.
    Everyone charged is from the Americas. Nobody from Africa, Asia, Europe or Oceania to my recollection.
    This has nothing to do with cleaning up FIFA.

  128. Election coming. Let’s see what files Jack gonna buss. AG Nicholas says they’re off to court for extradition.

  129. I wonder if the FBI really has a chance of getting FIFA. I wonder if we are going to extradite Jack or if the botched extradition trick applies to all this government’s former political donors.

  130. I have learnt not to hold my breath on these matters.

  131. Loretta Lynch is a boss , now watching her press conference on BBC…she not playing de ass

  132. Will JW be the first person (in my knowledge) of influence in Trinidad and Tobago that will finally face the music for his actions? I sure hope so and I hope he will not be the last. I also hope all those that went before will face the music eventually and the list is long.

  133. U.S. Officials will probably squeeze Daryan and Darryl to get to him. This will either happen quickly or not at all.

  134. And Ish and dem still in the country? so why you think Jack leaving anytime soon…..Just because the FBI say they indict Jack means that Jack have to go anywhere… only good thing for US is that we have a treaty which allows for extradition….However extradition is not guaranteed…. but if he goes to say Brazil or even Russia (still his good friends) good luck with that…. A lot of noise but same ole khaki pants…..

  135. Lasana the serving of any justice in Trinidad could be considered odd!

  136. Yep. For your sake I hope so too.

  137. What indication does the US give that their involvement will make FIFA less corrupt? So your domestic situation which can have a greater impact on their economy is less important than FIFA? How does a corrupt FIFA mar a beautiful game but a corrupt NFL and NBA doesn’t?

  138. I say uncle Jack ain’t going anywhere because as he wanted to do before and that is expose the FIFA and its’ culture with respect to the corruption that they allows and most likely that corrupted President Blatter is also involved and alyuh think that Guyana buck that he have in his corner easy nah. Them really good yes.

  139. Rhoda Bharath, I think he will spend much of his ill-gotten gains trying to avoid extradition… And I think he will lose.
    I actually hope it is a long and expensive case.

  140. Maybe this might clear it up. Yes the US can be domineering and sure, it probably wants more FIFA action, and the world would like to see more Wall St fiends behind bars, but different departments have different responsibilities, and i guess the international fraud squad unit is better at its job than the domestic team. FIFA is corrupt and it mars the beautiful game. And that should be all that matters when putting this development in context.

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_Corrupt_Practices_Act

  141. Vernal Damion Cadogan, I think local lawyers will bleed Jack dry as they fight his extradition… And I think they will eventually lose.
    There might be an odd justice there.

  142. Leslie-Ann Boisselle: “…Daryan and Daryll Warner face maximum terms of incarceration of 10 years for structuring financial transactions to evade currency reporting requirements. Each individual defendant also faces mandatory restitution, forfeiture and a fine. By the terms of their plea agreements, the corporate defendants face fines of US$500,000 (TT$3.2 million) and one year of probation.”
    That is straight from the US Department of Justice.

  143. For those who believe the FBI gives a hoot about FIFA and who the president might happen to be, I respectfully disagree.

  144. Jack Warner trending on Twitter. :/

  145. Every time yuh sleep and wake up is another bacchanal..

  146. Wait he still lobbying for votes?

  147. There’ll be no swift resolution with this one unless it’s extraordinary rendition. Jack can certainly frustrate and delay the process.

  148. The next few days will be interesting this is a developing story.the implications are very far reaching

  149. Hell yes they’re singing.
    The order in which the Feds hand down indictments is never random. They indicate those who are more likely to crack first.

  150. Those charged by the Justice Department include Jeffrey Webb, the head of the regional soccer body for North and Central America and the Caribbean, and Jack Warner, his predecessor. Mr. Webb is also a FIFA vice president.

    Authorities said they obtained 6 guilty pleas, including from Charles Blazer, the former general secretary of regional body Concacaf, and Mr. Warner’s son Daryll.

  151. Look past Jack. This issue is bigger than Jack. They are out to ‘reform’ FIFA yet there own Justice Department can’t manage or account for their own affairs. FIFA and football is a billion dollar business. Qatar just might lose its controversial World Cup 2020 bid. Waiting for the US appointments to FIFA.

  152. They were US citizens. The US Justice Department are charging more citizens of other countries than their own.

  153. Where are the billion dollar fraudsters of Wall Street? The Halliburton debacle in Iraq, where are they? Where is their 99% conviction rate? The US never gets involved unless there is something in it for them. In this case its money.

  154. They used the U.S. Banking system and some of the wire fraud was done in South Beach, Miami and Trump Plaza in NYC. The Feds have a 99.9% conviction rate. Game over

  155. Nicholas don’t drink that kool aid. The US wants in on FIFA. They have no influence its basically European and South American controlled. They want matches, games and some degree of influence (read take over FIFA). The average US citizen has no knowledge or interest in football unless its American football. The best way to get in is to take it down and build yourself into the new structure.

  156. Well the white plane better come down in our sweet country and pick up meh uncle corrupted Jack Warner really soon yes because he have plenty more files to buss on meh untie kamla and her corrupted government in order for them not to win the elections ever again. Them really good yes.

  157. No way Blattter singing like a bird. Blazer who started the dominoes falling by exposing Jack’s support for Bin Hammam and forgot his flank exposed did the singing. But I bet those arrested are singing their way to plea deals as we speak.

  158. No way Blattter singing like a bird. Blazer who started the dominoes falling by exposing Jack’s support for Bin Hammam and forgot his flank exposed did the singing. But I bet those arrested are singing their way to plea deals as we speak.

  159. Chuck Blazer was singing and wearing wires to assist the investigation.

  160. Give Jack his jacket… the US understands their World Power status rests on a stable financial system. Anything that can cripple or bring a lose of confidence will be caught and brought to justice!

  161. Could it possibly be that Sepp is the bird who is doing the singing? Will the US be chasing the proceeds of crime i.e. the funds and where they went? If so did any of these funds go into political parties? So many questions…

  162. Wrong the Lady say they have no financiers.

  163. You know even the investigators are corrupt when Sepp Blatter is not indicted for any misdeeds!!!!
    Swiss and Americans on shit.

  164. The UNC will go to town with this. They should be worried as they benefitted from his alleged dealings.

  165. I am taking bets that there will be no swift extradition in this case, if at all.

  166. Espn did an investigate report with Jeremy Schaap that implied Blatter is avoiding travelling to the States.

  167. Joann **pats you on back** I fully empathize

  168. Thanks Teresa but when I see AG it now brings to the point of being sick.

  169. It is news headlines what has me looking closely at this is the players involved on the US side the new AG of the US was involved with this case before she became AG and now it has become her main focus again as AG! IMHO!

  170. “The charges in the indictment are merely allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”
    Does this quotation from the article on the US Justice Depatment actions mean anything?

  171. The AG Philip Ignacio SC was referring to is the US’ not TT’s Joann

  172. Agreed. Quoting the NY Times article.

  173. And he was indicted not arrested

  174. New AG coming soon. Extradition won’t be so easy to escape on this one. Although I’m sure he will file exhaustive appeals

  175. He was not arrested. The Times reports that a source says he’s been charged. Not arrested.

  176. Rhoda you are right. Good point Keith, but there are wider political herestakes

  177. I can’t say it enough though. Kudos to journalists like Lasana Liburd and Andrew Jennings for their commitment and tireless work!

  178. So he still free….is up to TTPS and international authorities now….oh,btw, election date coming this week watch and see

  179. He was giving an interview this morning so no

  180. Can anyone confirm that JaWa been arrested though?

  181. Lasana Liburd a necessary follow up piece is the steps in this thing. He has been charged…now what? How will he be made to answer the charges? Extradition? What are the stakes etc.
    Good luck getting rest today. Mwah!

  182. Steups AG from the anointed goat to this fella.

  183. Ish and Steve easy to defend. They’re “trying” to have them face charges in the local courts. Jack has no charges to face here in this matter.

  184. Wonder what the PM will say when the Feds politely ask that Jack be sent up to Brooklyn?

  185. This is big. it is international. the full force atthe highest level of the U.S legal system is behind it. it will be interesting to see how it plays out politically. Kamla is likely claim vindication for her decision to part ways with him. But Dominic u are right. But she will have to defend her decision on Ish and Steve.

  186. AG having a news conference at 8:30 this morning stay tuned!

  187. They cannot come for anybody. We have to extradite.

  188. Saw this article Pavel, but still fact checking the “investigated” as opposed to the “charged” report.

  189. ^^^^^^^
    You can always count on authors eh? LOL

  190. And he’s been denying this investigation ever since. Brazen enough to threaten legal action. Anyway i hope the investigation leads to persons who benefited from these “ill-gotten” gains are also held accountable

  191. I know why the caged bird sings!

  192. The US gov’t will come for all three of them together.

  193. I wonder if Jack is going to be as fortunate as Ish and Steve? And if he’s extradited what about them?

  194. Birds of a feather flock together, and American law enforcement specialize on seizing one bird and making him give up the entire flock to save himself.

    The first bird to sing to it’s captors probably won’t avoid the cage, but he will definitely avoid the pot!

  195. And Jack was just on TV saying this is the first time he’s hearing about it.
    His sons already preping for sentencing and jail, but you now hearing of it today
    Lies Lies Lies.

  196. Jack talking robber talk: “…the US authorities know where I am. I am in my office. They could come and get me….”

  197. I need writers ASAP!
    Lasana!
    We have work to do!

  198. And Jack would have been keeping dirt on people both within FIFA and the UNC for just such an occasion.

  199. My word greed is a hell of a thing, imagine at 83 years you are making a jail hmmmm

  200. Over 1000 black men die at the hands of their own police and the US justice system has time for FIFA? They have numerous serious domestic issues but they have time for FIFA? 3 years worth of investigations?

    • They also had time to investigate the killings in Ferguson, Staten Island, North Charleston and Cleveland. You might want to pay closer attention next time.

  201. The only reason he hasn’t been arrested is because this government is not cooperating on any matter involving extradition to the US….but we know how things going with that. Up next – Emailgate.

  202. Many many years waiting for the same with the gang that governs FIVB (Volleyball Federation), the same style the Mexican Acosta, guilty of taking for him 33 Millons Us, teached to Ary Graca, Cristobal Marte, and Wei, their Vicepresidents, now governing the most corrupted Sports Organization.

  203. The crimes occurred on US soil and US currency was used. They are not investigating FIFA per se.

  204. Since he wasn’t charged in a local court and free while fighting extradition, can he still run for MP? That would be a new low for T & T.

  205. And since he wasn’t dealt with at the same time as the others, expect legal challenges all the way to the Privy Council.

  206. Granted its not a bunch of choir girls but why is the US investigating FIFA and they have to answer to the US justice system for an international crime? Even their media is confused.

  207. On the local New York 1 news this morning it was reported that five officials were already in custody.
    One can only imagine that those five are already naming names to save themselves!

  208. I read recently that Blatter has been avoiding traveling to the US.

  209. I always knew and said hear more than several times that when Warner and FIFA’s times come it would be in the US.

  210. Didn’t Kamla deny that he was ever in trouble in the beginning? lmao! She went hard for she side kick until they fell out. Now look? I hope he gets what he deserves because he is not a nice man, but still he has supporters who dont give a rats arse how corrupt he is. Oh well… FIFA don’t play.

  211. PP time now..they gonna have to extradite Jack-which they may want to do tonight- in the face of Ish and Steve still here. Let the spin begin!

  212. Nothing straightforward here. Others immediately arrested. Here man giving interviews.

  213. A friend just told me he was live on Power 102 so he has to be free on bail at the most.

  214. Corruption in football only has consequences if it was done involving the US. FIFA, CONCACAF and all other governments did absolutely nothing.

  215. Lasana, you got witness protection? 🙂

  216. Err he is Kendall. Extradition to the U.S. soon.

  217. He apparently on radio right now so he wasn’t arrested.

  218. The Integrity Committee report was hilarious. Why that resulted in no action is beyond me.

  219. Moby’s “Run On” comes immediately to mind. “You might run on, for a long time, run on, ducking ‘n’ dodging…” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrBGUqNBEgE

  220. Biffy Von-Biffington look ting!!!

  221. This is the story of the year,the rumours have been confirmed,the apple cart has been turned over,we must also add the politicians who benefited from his generosity

  222. Excellent job Lasana Liburd but where is Jack? And when will he be headed to the U.S.? Lolololol

  223. Whhheeyyy sarrrr!!! Let’s see if he actually gets extradited…..

  224. the ag has to also sign for ish and others

  225. The real question is when will Sepp be joining them ???

  226. Tks to Lasana for this clarification and update.

  227. Look trouble now! What say you Mr Warner?

  228. Is he still in Trinidad? Has the AG already signed his extradition papers?

  229. I now see this on international news! Jack picture up with others to be charged
