Warner’s extradition proceedings postponed

first_imgJack Warner Embattled former FIFA vice-president, Trinidadian Jack Warner has succeeded in having extradition proceedings against him put off for another nine months.Warner, who remains a prominent figure in the FIFA corruption scandal which saw several high-profile officials indicted by the US courts in 2015, received a blow in his bid to avoid extradition to the United States where he will face corruption charges.  In November of last year, a Trinidad and Tobago court threw out an appeal filed on behalf of Warner that challenged the legality of the extradition order.In submissions, Warner’s attorneys had argued that the procedures adopted by the attorney general in signing the extradition treaty two years ago violated his rights as a citizen based on the Extradition Act.  The judge disagreed but gave the former CONCACAF boss leave to appeal the decision.  Following a return to court on Monday, Justice Mark Mohammed agreed that the appeal against the decision would be heard in November.   Warner was represented by Senior Counsel Fyard Hosein and attorneys Anil Maraj and Sasha Bridgemohansingh. He is accused of 12 offences related to racketeering, corruption and money laundering, allegedly committed in the US and Trinidad and Tobago, dating as far back as 1990.last_img read more

To me, it was a crossroad that could change the direction of my life, and my future.”pic.twitter.com/Nnc7iazM1c— Bijan Robinson (@Bijan5Robinson) August 2, 2019According to 247Sports’ evaluation of the rising senior at Salpointe Catholic High School, Robinson has “(t)errific vision and patience behind the line of scrimmage. Has burst to hit the second level and reach another gear. Short strides, but effectively changes pace and turns the corner. Elusive in the open field. Threat to score from anywhere on the field.” Related News Texas enters the 2019 season ranked 10th in the preseason USA Today Coaches poll.An unofficial projected Longhorns depth chart shows sophomore Keaontay Ingram as the top running back with true freshman and early enrollee Jordan Whittington the potential No. 2 coming out of fall.If Robinson is to contribute as a freshman next season in Herman’s rush-pass attack, he likely will have to be a better receiver out of the backfield than he has shown at the high school level. The evaluation assesses that Robinson could potentially contribute immediately in college and has the upside to grow into a first-round NFL Draft pick.
