Warner takes action after allegations


FIFA Vice-President Jack Warner has decided to take action following the leaking of a report that alleges his involvement in a World Cup ticketing scandal.

Warner believes he has been left with no choice but to bring the legal action after the media reports. He has instructed Swiss counsel (Bruppacher Hug & Partner of Zollikon, Switzerland) to bring charges for defamation, and to take action for violation of his personal rights, against persons unknown and in the environment of FIFA and the authors of the report, Ernst &Young. {{more}}This action will be filed in Zurich, Switzerland.

“I was shocked when I saw the report in the media and all the more shocked when I read the incorrect facts and conclusions it contained. The report is incomplete, biased, and wrong. Then this report was given to the media without anyone ever speaking to me or reviewing the documentary evidence, which shows the errors in this report. While I would rather not take these actions, I am left with no choice but to do so both to defend my name and investigate who is behind these deliberate acts against me.”
