New corruption allegations against Warner and CONCACAF

Former CONCACAF President, Jack Warner, has again been accused of corruption.


By Play the Game

Just as Jeffery Webb was elected the new president of CONCACAF at the football confederation’s congress in Budapest yesterday and the confederation hoped to enter a new era of integrity, new corruption allegations against former CONCACAF leaders were revealed.

Accusations of tax evasion and misappropriation of funds by the former leaders of CONCACAF caused delegates to launch an attack against the past regime of former CONCACAF president Jack Warner and ex-general secretary Chuck Blazer.

A motion calling for the removal of Chuck Blazer from FIFA’s Executive Committee was passed almost unanimously, although only FIFA itself can decide to exclude a member. 

An independent audit of the confederation presented evidence of a tangled economy, showing that CONCACAF allegedly concealed tax liabilities in the US between 2007 and 2011 amounting to millions of dollars. 

Even bigger was the disclosure that the $22.5 million Centre of Excellence in Trinidad was not owned by CONCACAF, as all its members had assumed, but - secretly - by two companies owned by Warner.
