AG: US still to ask for Jack’s extradition

“The US Department of Justice has not yet sent any final requests on the Jack Warner extradition request to the Trinidad and Tobago authorities and is still within the 60-day window specified by the treaty for the final request to be delivered,” stated the embassy in a release yesterday.

Attorney General Garvin Nicholas also told the Express his office did not receive any documents yet relative to the extradition.

Based on information received, the Express yesterday reported official documentation requesting the extradition of former FIFA vice-president, corruption accused Warner was delivered to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Warner is currently on $2.5 million bail after surrendering himself to Fraud Squad officers on May 27 after learning the warrant had been issued for his arrest.

Warner will next appear before Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar in the Port of Spain Court on July 9.

He is accused of accepting a US$10 million bribe in exchange for helping South Africa secure the right to host the 2010 World Cup, which he has denied.

The US Department of Justice has 60 days from the date of the provisional warrant being served on Warner (May 27) to furnish documents for an extradition request.

Questions sent to Warner yesterday were not answered.

He continues the Independent Liberal Party (ILP) election campaign this week with meetings carded for tomorrow and Thursday.
