Jack Warner Extradition Case Adjourned to September

Former CONCACAF President Jack Warner will find out in September whether he will be extradited to the United States to face charges of corruption.

Trinidad High Court Judge

James Aboud was originally scheduled to deliver his verdict this week but the judge had adjourned the matter to a date to be set in September following the opening of the new law term, according to media reports.

Warner, 72, was released on a TT$2.5 million bail when he made his first court appearance on May 27, 2015.

He is charged with 12 offences related to racketeering, corruption and money laundering allegedly committed in the jurisdiction of the United States and Trinidad and Tobago, dating as far back as 1990.

Warner claims the case against him is politically motivated and accuses the United States of seeking revenge because it lost to Qatar in its bid to host the 2022 World Cup.

Last year, Justice Aboud dismissed an application by the United States government to intervene in the judicial review lawsuit.
