Former government minister Jack Warner has 120 days to raise to $3.7 million or sell three of apartments at his Emerald Plaza Hotel at St Augustine to settle an outstanding judgment debt.
Warner agreed to those terms after Docs Engineering Works Ltd filed a judgment summons for the court to order Warner to sell Emerald Plaza and use the money to settle the debt.
Bad news for Jack Warner as he has lost his lawsuit challenging his extradition to the United States.
Warner is wanted by authorities to answer charges of fraud arising out of a FIFA bribery scandal.
Delivering a 50-page ruling in the High Court this afternoon, Justice James Aboud dismissed the claim for judicial review brought by Warner.
That lawsuit challenged the process used by the Office of the Attorney General in signing off on the US Government's request for his extradition in May 2015.
Former CONCACAF president and FIFA Vice-President Jack Warner is suing CONCACAF for US$40 million, twice the amount CONCACAF is suing both Warner and former head of the US Football Federation, Chuck Blazer.
Warner issued a statement Tuesday saying his lawsuit is also again CONCACAF's president Sunil Gulati for defamation.
The following is Warner's statement:
The organisation that governs soccer in much of the Americas has slapped its former leaders with a US$20 million lawsuit for fraud.
The Confederation of North, Central American, and Caribbean Association Football, or CONCACAF — which sends teams from that region to compete in the World Cup — named its former general secretary, Chuck Blazer, and its former president, Jack Warner, in a suit filed last week in the U.S. Eastern District of New York.
The suit also names some of Blazer’s shell companies.
An Appeal Court panel headed by Chief Justice Ivor Archie and including Appeal Justices Allan Mendonca and Peter Jamadar, unanimously ruled today against the US Government in its appeal in the Judicial Review matter associated with the extradition case against Jack Warner.
A written judgment was penned by Justice Mendonca, to which CJ Archie and Justice Jamadar expressed agreement.
