Judge: Warner says he knows nothing about accounts
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) -- A high court judge says former FIFA vice president Jack Warner claims he knows nothing about any outstanding bonuses from the national team's 2006 World Cup run.
Justice Devindra Rampersad said Tuesday that Warner, the former special adviser to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation, submitted a letter denying any knowledge of the whereabouts of the accounts from the World Cup tournament. Warner's letter was not released by the judge.
Earlier this month, World Cup veterans from Trinidad and Tobago's national soccer team seized office equipment from the country's governing body due to the long-standing payment dispute.
Thirteen Soca Warriors who represented the Caribbean country in 2006 say they are owed millions in bonuses.
