ZURICH: Jack Warner, despite having decided himself to walk away from all football rather than stand up to bribery allegations, has relented enough to provide FIFA with “very detailed documentation” concerning the mystery over aid cash for Haiti in 2010.
Warner, a former FIFA vice-president, has denied allegations that very little of the $750,000 from FIFA and the South Korean federation ever reached the earthquake-hit island in spring two years ago.
Haiti federation president Yves Jean-Bart had claimed that his organisation saw only $60,000 dollars.
It remains unclear whether Warner’s provision of documentation to FIFA brings him back within the scope of the Ethics Committee disciplinary system.
Warner, who resigned from football last year after being charged with bribery, has claimed that the FIFA money chanelled through a Trinidad and Tobago FF bank account and the South Korean money through a account administered by the regional organisation, CONCACAF, of which Warner was then president.
A FIFA statement said: “FIFA can confirm that Jack Warner has submitted very detailed documentation to FIFA, with reference to the application of the Haiti funds received for distribution (as had been requested by FIFA).
“The volume of the evidentiary material provided means that FIFA will require some time to analyse it and come to a conclusion.”
Warner has threated to sue local media claims about his role in handling the monies.
