News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. June 22, 2011: A day after he quit his post as president of the CONCACAF federation of countries and vice president of FIFA, Jack Warner insists he was ”hung out to dry.”
In an interview with Bloomberg News, Warner, a Trinidad minister of government who has faced bribery claims for years, said: “What’s happening now for me is hypocrisy.”
”It’s not unusual for such things to happen and gifts have been around throughout the history of FIFA,” said Warner, who was reported to FIFA by CONCACAF’s general secretary Chuck Blazer and became the focus of an investigation into corruption in world football’s governing body.
“I’ve been hung out to dry continually and I’m not prepared to take that,” he added.
Warner also insisted in a statement he would have been exonerated by the ethics committee.
