Jack Warner attacks 'conspiracy' against Caribbean football
Wednesday 12 October 2011
Jack Warner has claimed the leak of a video appearing to show him urging officials to accept cash gifts from Mohamed Bin Hammam shows there is a "conspiracy" against Caribbean football.
Warner, who quit as a FIFA vice-president in June after being charged with bribery, said the timing of the leak in a week in which 15 Caribbean officials are facing ethics committee hearings showed FIFA was prepared to do all it could to defend its position.
Warner said in an email to Press Association Sport: "The release of this video is tantamount to contempt because it seeks to influence international opinion against what is clearly a conspiracy against the delegates of the Caribbean Football Union.
"Moreover there are a lot more questions which the FIFA should answer from this convenient revelation.
"The Caribbean delegates are currently in Zurich and are actively involved in disciplinary proceedings established by the FIFA so this leak is clearly subjudicious (sic) and contrary to the very principles of law and justice.
"Regretfully, this is what defines the FIFA; a perceived right to do all in its power, right or wrong, to defend its own."
