News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Feb. 23, 2018: The Trinidad-born, embattled former FIFA vice-president, Jack Warner, has succeeded in having extradition proceedings against him pushed back again – this time for another nine months.
The extradition delay comes some three months after a Trinidad and Tobago court threw out an appeal filed on behalf of Warner, that challenged the legality of the extradition order. Justice Mark Mohammed agreed that the appeal against the decision would be heard in November this year.
Warner remains a prominent figure in the FIFA corruption scandal which saw several high-profile officials indicted by the US courts in 2015. He is facing corruption charges in the US.
Warner is accused of 12 offences related to racketeering, corruption and money laundering, allegedly committed in the US and Trinidad and Tobago, dating as far back as 1990.
