Trinidad soccer federation to sue Warner for funds

The Trinidad and Tobago football federation says it plans to sue

former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner to recover millions of

dollars in funds including those slated for Haiti as a

post-earthquake donation.

Federation attorney Derek Ali told a judge Friday that he

planned to file a lawsuit. High Court Judge Devindra Rampersad

ordered Ali to send Warner a protocol letter advising him of the

federation’s intentions.

Warner told reporters that the federation had the right to file

a lawsuit and said he would wait to see what happens.

Warner previously served as the federation’s special adviser and

resigned last year to avoid a bribery probe.
