Mr. Jack Warner can hold Cabinet & FIFA posts


Four legal experts, former President Sir Ellis Clarke, Sir Fenton Ramsahoye SC, Sir Michael Beloff QC and Russell Martineau SC all unanimously agree that there are no laws which prohibit Chaguanas West MP Jack Warner from serving as Works and Transport Minister and as a FIFA vice-president. The issue was raised by Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley.

The entire documentation of the opinions expressed by this very prominent panel can be read in its entirety from the link provided above. 

There is no doubt that this position was forthcoming. Mr. Warner's position at FIFA is an asset and not a liability to our country. Granted that the issue has nothing to do with the good that comes from Mr. Warner's position at FIFA the panel could not find any conflict of interest that could arise from Mr. Warner holding both positions. 

This opinion that was used by the Prime Minister to keep Mr. Warner in his present position without any demand to quit the FIFA position will not sit well with supporters of the opposition. However, it is time to move on the decision has been made. Let us now judge Mr. Warner on his ability to run the Ministry of Works and Transportation - that is the real test of his ability to serve the people.
