Trinidad Court Postpones Jack Warner’s Extradition Hearing

PORT-OF-SPAIN – Wednesday’s hearing in Trinidad and Tobago on a U.S. request for the extradition of former soccer executive Jack Warner on corruption charges ended within minutes after the magistrate adjourned the proceedings until Feb. 19.

The flamboyant Trinidadian businessman and politician served from 1997-2011 as a vice president of FIFA, soccer’s world governing body.

Warner, 72, appeared briefly in court on Wednesday, but no evidence was heard, as both prosecutors and defense attorneys asked the judge for a continuance.

The delay is to allow time for the Trinidad High Court to rule on a motion filed by Warner’s lawyers challenging the legal basis of the extradition bid.

Warner is one of 14 former and present FIFA officials indicted in the U.S. on a number of charges including corruption and wire fraud.
