A former FIFA official loses an appeal against the decision to extradite him to America
A court in London announced Thursday that it has become possible to extradite Jack Warner,
the former vice-president of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA),
who is in his country, Trinidad, to the US authorities to prosecute him on corruption charges.
Warner's lawyers defended their client, considering that his extradition to the US authorities was illegal.
But the highest court of appeal in London at the level of many countries in the Commonwealth
rejected the appeal unanimously, which may allow his extradition to the United States.
