Trinidad and Tobago’s Jack Warner is involved in a bribery probe by officials of FIFA, football’s global governing body. Warner, the president of the CONCACAF federation, a FIFA vice president and Trinidad’s Minister of Works and Transport, has been called the most powerful man in Caribbean football. According to a file including sworn affidavits by Caribbean Football Union members, they were offered thousands of dollars in cash for “development projects” at a meeting earlier this month regarding FIFA’s presidential election. Warner, along with FIFA presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam and two other officials have been called to a FIFA ethics hearing May 29. [BBC Sport]
