Trinidad opposition seeks Jack Warner resignation

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) — The leader of Trinidad’s main opposition party is seeking the resignation of former world soccer vice president Jack Warner, who currently serves as the island’s national security minister.

Opposition leader Keith Rowley said late Friday that he will present the issue for debate in Parliament next week.

His comments came just hours after CONCACAF’s ethics and integrity committee released a report stating Warner and the former secretary general of the Confederation of North and Central American and Caribbean Football enriched themselves through fraud during their terms with the organization.

Warner is a former vice president of the world soccer body FIFA who oversaw North American and Caribbean soccer for almost 30 years. He resigned in June 2011 to avoid investigation into a bribery scandal.
