Warner says he made no deal with the UNC

Former UNC chairman Jack Warner said he’s made no deal with the UNC in exchange for rejoining.

The Prime Minister recently stated that Warner’s return to the party was part of a deal to help him avoid being extradited to the US.

But Warner, in a Newsday interview, maintained that his rejoining the party for its local government elections campaign had nothing to do with any deal he allegedly made with the UNC for help with his ongoing legal matters.

Warner is still facing extradition to the US for corruption charges relating to when he was FIFA vice president,

He said: “I have been in FIFA for over 30 years, and for 30 years FIFA has never said anything about me about impropriety,” he claimed. “I have helped thousands of persons. Not one has ever said anything (bad) about me except Rowley.”

But he said, “I didn’t know that the UNC has power over the courts.I know they have the best lawyers in the country.”

Warner boasted, “To date, Rowley’s government has paid for 17 lawyers with taxpayers’ money to get me out of the country. and I’m still here.”

He promised to provide further details about his legal matters in a press release.
