Suspended FIFA vice-president Warner will not meet bribery investigators

Jack Warner says he has no intentions to meet bribery investigators after he was suspended from his duties as FIFA vice-president.

Members of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) have been called on to speak with investigators about bribery allegations but Warner says he is not one of them.

"I have not received any summons asking me to speak with them [the investigators] nor do I plan to do so," he told Press Association Sport.

18 of the 25 CFU associations which have allegedly been paid or offered bribes of 40,000 US dollars each refused FIFA's call to travel to Miami to answer questions but the president of the Barbados Football Association, Ronald Jones, says neither he or any of his officials were offered any bribes at any time.

"None of our delegates were offered any inducements or gifts to support any of the candidates during the meeting on May 10," he said in a statement.

"Our delegates listened to the speeches by Mohamed Bin Hamman, who was there to make a case as to why he would need the support of FIFA members of the CFU.

"The Barbados Football Association was made aware that the trip and accommodation were sponsored by Mohamed Bin Hamman under the auspices of the CFU. The BFA did not and does not see this as akin to bribery or any inducements as in the past trips by Caribbean delegates to meetings have been sponsored by the organisation and agency that wanted to put on the programme."
