Documents unveil details of Jack Warner’s FIFA ‘bribes’

The BBC gave all documents to Brent Sancho, Trinidad and Tobago's sports minister

Published: Updated:

The BBC on Sunday claimed to have seen evidence detailing what happened with a $10 million sent from FIFA to accounts controlled by its former vice-president, Jack Warner.

The huge sum, which went to Warner and his associates through a series of transfers and money laundering schemes, was used for payments, cash withdrawals and personal loans, according to the BBC.

It was due to be used for the South Africa's Football Association for its diaspora legacy program to develop football in the Caribbean.

Warner, who has been arrested and charged by U.S. prosecutors over alleged corruption at FIFA, denied the accusations.

The BBC gave all documents to Brent Sancho, Trinidad and Tobago's sports minister.

Reacting to the documents, Sancho said: “He [Warner] must face justice, he must answer all of these questions. Justice has to be served.

“He will have to account, with this investigation, he will have to answer for his actions.”

“I'm devastated because a lot of that money should have been back in football, back in the development of children playing the sport.

“It is a travesty. Warner should answer the questions,” he added.
