Warner avoids prosecution over alleged Fifa bribery scandal


Jack Warner will not face prosecution in his home country of Trinidad and Tobago, over the alleged Fifa bribery scandal.

The former Fifa vice-president quit football last June after being charged by the governing body with bribery, in connection with payments to Caribbean football officials. The director of public prosecutions has decided against pursuing criminal charges against Warner, the country's deputy prime minister.
