CONCACAF denies Warner’s claims over suit

| 02/08/2013

(CNS): The regional football body CONCACAF has denied allegations made by Jack Warner that the confederation has given the former official permission to undertake or consented to any legal action he said he is planning against Sir David Simmons who chaired the football association’s ethics committee. According to regional reports, Warner plans to sue Simmonds because of findings made by the committee that Warner fraudulent in his management of CONCACAF which is now headed up by Caymanian, Jeffery Webb. Simmons, a former chief justice in Barbados and his committee released the report in April leading Warner to resign as National Security Minister, in Trinidad.

Warner told the press in Trinidad this week that a legal challenge will be mounted against Simmons after he had received legal advice that the report was flawed and Warner said he had “received an agreement from CONCACAF, for permission to take legal action against Simmons.
However, the confederation was quick to deny any such permission as the body said it supported Sir David Simmons’ committee’s findings.

“CONCACAF has had no discussions with Mr Warner regarding, nor does it consent to the undertaking of, any legal action against Sir David Simmons, any other member of the Integrity Committee, any member or executive of CONCACAF or any member of the Football community.  CONCACAF fully supports the findings of the independent Integrity Committee,” it stated Friday.

At a press briefing in his constituency, Warner refused to divulge further information but said in time this agreement with CONCACAF As well as his grounds for the legal action would be made public.

“Everything is timing,” Warner said.
