FIFA Official Says Former CONCACAF Leaders Warner And Blazer Should Be Prosecuted
FIFA Audit & Compliance Committee Head Domenico Scala said that former CONCACAF leaders Jack Warner and Chuck Blazer "should face the full force of the law for their alleged misdemeanours during the two decades that they ran the confederation," according to Mike Collett of REUTERS. Scala: "In the case of Jack Warner and Chuck Blazer this has far bigger implications than just (FIFA's) Ethics Committee, or the rules of the game. There is sufficient suspicion that they have gone against the law and this will become an issue for the FBI and the IRS in the case of taxation." Warner turned his back on football after being implicated in a bribery scandal in '11, "while Blazer has also left the game although, on a technicality, he is suspended from FIFA's executive committee until Friday" (REUTERS, 5/29).
