Jack Warner banned for life

29 September 2015, 13:03

Zurich — FIFA has banned former vice president Jack Warner for life over misconduct following an investigation into the bidding contest for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The decision Tuesday by FIFA's ethics committee comes as Warner fights extradition from Trinidad on U.S. charges of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering.

After being implicated in an earlier bribery scandal, Warner quit FIFA in 2011. The governing body said at the time that the "presumption of innocence is maintained."

But in Tuesday's ruling, FIFA said Warner "committed many and various acts of misconduct continuously and repeatedly during his time as an official in different high-ranking and influential positions at FIFA and CONCACAF."

FIFA said Warner was involved in the "offer, acceptance, and receipt of undisclosed and illegal payments."
