MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Jack Warner was among 14 world soccer figures, including high-ranking FIFA officials, indicted on Wednesday by the US Department of Justice with racketeering and money laundering.
According to The Mirror, the 72-year-old Warner, who is now a special adviser to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation, has left the jail using a medical complaint of exhaustion.
According to media reports, Warner was released on $2.5 million bail, pending a hearing on extradition to the United States.
The 14 suspects indicted by the US Department of Justice are accused of receiving bribes totaling $150 million, in a corruption scheme that ran for some 24 years. Seven of the defendants were arrested in Zurich, Switzerland just days ahead of FIFA's Friday presidential elections.
