Jack Warner has resigned from his roles in international football administration.
The 68-year-old had been suspended from his posts - Vice-President of FIFA and President of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football - pending an investigation into alleged bribery to have Mohamed Bin Hammam elected President of the international body.
“Mr Warner is leaving FIFA by his own volition after nearly 30 years of service, having chosen to focus on his important work on behalf of the people and government of Trinidad and Tobago as a Cabinet Minister and as the Chairman of the United National Congress, the major party in his country’s coalition government,” a FIFA statement said.
“The FIFA Executive Committee, the FIFA President and the FIFA management thank Mr Warner for his services to Caribbean, CONCACAF and international football over his many years devoted to football at both regional and international level, and wish him well for the future.“
The statement added that the Ethics Committee’s investigations had been dropped and that “the presumption of innocence is maintained”.
