The adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee of FIFA yesterday announced that it has banned former vice-president, Jack Warner from football-related activity at both national and international levels for life
“The former Caribbean federation president was found to have committed many and various acts of misconduct continuously and repeatedly during his time as an official in different high-ranking and influential positions at FIFA and CONCACAF” said the Ethics Committee statement.
“In his positions as a football official, he was a key player in schemes involving the offer, acceptance, and receipt of undisclosed and illegal payments, as well as other money-making schemes,” added the statement.
The 72-year-old is fighting extradition from Trinidad and Tobago to the United States to face 12 charges of wire fraud, racketeering and money laundering related to the ongoing FIFA corruption scandal. He is also accused of buying the television rights to the 2010 and 2014 World Cup tournaments from FIFA president Sepp Blatter for grossly deflated sums. He faces a hearing in his homeland in December.
