News Americas, PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Mon. July 13, 2015: Former FIFA Vice President and former Trinidad & Tobago minister, Jack Warner, has gotten his extradition hearing postponed.
Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Ceasar set a new hearing date of July 27. Defense lawyer Nyree Alfonso says the July 9th hearing was adjourned because U.S. authorities have yet to send charges to Trinidad.
Warner is accused of taking payments totaling $10 million sent by a high-ranking FIFA official to give South Africa the right to host the 2010 World Cup.
Warner emerged from the Port-of-Spain court surrounded by supporters. He has predicted a lengthy battle to extradite him to the U.S. to face charges in the FIFA corruption case.
