The United States Department
of Justice has not yet sent any
final requests to the T&T author-
ities on the Jack Warner extradi-
tion request, the US Embassy in
T&T stated yesterday.
The Public Affairs division of
the US Embassy in T&T made the
situation clear yesterday following
an Express story that incorrectly
claimed the US had sent the
request via a "package" to Gov-
ernment s Foreign Affairs Ministry
on the Sunday.
Former Fifa jefe Warner - and
13 other Fifa officials - were
indicted last month by the US Jus-
tice Department on charges
including alleged money launder-
ing, racketeering and wire fraud
charges. He is also listed on Inter-
pol s watchlist in the event he tries
to leave the country.
The newspaper claimed "official
documentation had been delivered
to the Ministry and "sources" said
that around midday Sunday the
package was dropped off via couri-
er and would "be sent to Central
Authority head Netram Kowlessar"
However, Foreign Affairs Min-
ister Winston Dookeran yesterday
confirmed that his Ministry had
not received any "package" from
the US. "Nothing was sent to us,"
Contacted by the Guardian on
the issue, the US Embassy shortly
after issued a statement saying no
final request had been made in the
matter and the US is still within
the 60-day window specified by
the (Mutual Assistance) treaty
(between the US and T&T) for
the final request to be delivered.
Attorney General Garvin
Nicholas also said the Central
Authority of the AG s office had
informed him that no extradition
request had been received from
Nicholas has said that Govern-
ment has so far only been asked
to facilitate the provisional arrest
warrant for Warner and T&T isn t
locked into any obligation with the
US to deliver Warner to the US
and "there is a procedure that
needs to be followed."
It has been confirmed that the
deadline for the 60-day period is
July 27, by which date the US
extradition request must be filed.
The provisional arrest warrant
for Warner was executed on May
26 and Warner, out on $2.5m bail,
is due to reappear in the Port-of-
Spain Magistrates Court again on
At United National Congress
St Helena meeting last Friday,
UNC deputy leader Roodal Mooni-
lal said Warner wasn t fighting
elections, "he s fighting extradition,
his date isn t September 7 (general
election), it s July 27 (deadline for
the US request)."
There was no response from
Warner on the extradition deadline
Warner s Independent Liberal
Party intends to hold public meet-
ings in Claxton Bay tonight and
later on in Chaguanas.

NO FUNDING FOR ME---CAROLYN
San Fernando West MP
Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan says
ILP's Jack Warner never gave her
Responding to what she said
were attacks on her, she said, "if
there was any funding, it was not
to my knowledge and it never
happened in front of me, he
walked the Trainline at
Embacadere with me as he did
with others in other marginal
"I don't deny I know the man, I
was a UNC member and part of
a slate - in UNC elections -
known as the Progressives and
Warner, Roodal Moonilal and
myself went up for deputy leader
on that slate and Warner won."
