Former International football strongman, Jack Warner, has lost an appeal to prevent his extradition to face corruption charges in the United States, after the court of appeal dismissed a judicial review challenging that extradition.

The 76-year-old Trinidadian had his initial claim for judicial review dismissed by high court judge James Aboud in 2017 but had subsequently challenged the ruling, contesting the process by which the extradition proceedings against him were being carried out and seeking to quash the authority to proceed (ATP) which was signed in 2016 by attorney general Faris Al-Rawi.

A former powerful former FIFA vice-president and Concacaf president, Warner also challenged the legality of the extradition act, and the treaty signed between this country and the United States.
