The direct for remuneration was done only days after a argumentative preference to
horde a 2022 World Cup in a Arab kingdom.
Addressed to Khalid Electrical and Mechanical Est (Kemco) in Doha, Qatar – a
association owned by Mohamed Bin Hammam, a country’s Fifa deputy at
a time – it requests remuneration for work carried out between 2005 and 2010.
The check is from Jamad Limited, a organisation set adult by Jack Warner.
For 28 years Mr Warner was one of a many absolute group in universe football,
portion as boss of Concacaf – a Fifa ruling physique representing
football associations in north and Central America and a Caribbean. Mr
Warner also hold positions in Trinidad’s government, including apportion of
works and transport, as good as inhabitant security.
The Edward Street skill that is home to Jamad Limited is also owned by Mr
Warner and was a domicile of Concacaf.
Evidence seen by The Telegraph shows that Mr Bin Hammam’s association transferred
some-more than $2 million to Mr Warner, his family and employees in 2011. One
letter, antiquated Jul 2011, states that a remuneration of $1.2 million to “Mr Jack
Warner” is to “offset veteran services supposing over a period
The leaked papers will lift questions about a objectivity of a Fifa
executive cabinet members.
Only 7 months before a letters referring to “professional services” were
sent, England’s bid to theatre a World Cup finished in degrading better when
Russia was awarded a 2018 tournament. On a same day, Qatar won a 2022
competition when it cumulative 14 out of 22 votes, violence other behest nations
including a US and Australia.
The preference was a quarrelsome one: temperatures in Qatar frequently strech 50C
(122F) in summer and a Gulf state’s rivals had not seen it as a serious
contender during a start of a behest process.
Harold Mayne-Nicholls, who led a Fifa review team, pronounced in Oct last
year that it would be “impossible” to play a competition safely in the
withering Qatari summer.
The Fifa voting routine is regarded as opaque: executive cabinet members
expel their votes in secret, so it is misleading that nation perceived each
member’s vote. Even before a executive members of Fifa met to vote,
concerns had been lifted about a uprightness of a process.
Documents seen by this journal uncover that in Jul 2011, Kemco done two
payments to Mr Warner. One, on Jul 4, for $1.2 million appears to have been
deserted by a Cayman Islands bank.
A minute on Kemco headed paper, antiquated 4th Jul 2011, states that a payment
is being done “to equivalent authorised and other losses compared with courtesy to
an ongoing matter”. It is misleading what a authorised losses could describe to,
though in May 2011, both Mr Warner and Mr Bin Hammam were confronting bribery
allegations in a Caribbean.
A second remuneration was done on Jul 14 2011. This time, a minute from Kemco
states that a remuneration is being done to “offset Professional Services
supposing over a duration 2005 to 2010”. This send appears to have been
successful. Other papers uncover that Mr Warner’s sons, Daryan and Daryll,
also perceived income from Kemco.
Daryan, a eldest, appears as a executive and shareholder on many of his
father’s companies including Jamad Limited. He is also listed as carrying a
association residence during his parents’ home in Trinidad.
According to a minute that appears to have been created by Kemco, Daryan
Warner was paid $316,000 around one of his companies and Daryll received
$432,000. One of Mr Warner’s employees also perceived $412,000.
These brief letters, that seem to have been pasted in an email, also
advise that a payments to Mr Warner’s children and his staff member were
related to “legal expenses”. Even if Kemco was covering a cost of Mr
Warner’s losses per a Trinidad temptation allegations, it is unclear
because his kin would be involved.
The dual brothers live in a penthouse unit unknowingly Miami’s Biscayne
Bay in a condominium with a possess tennis courts, jetty and concierge
service. In a final year, one of Daryan’s companies, DW Property Holdings,
has bought 6 apartments in Miami, costing roughly a million dollars.
Both Mr Bin Hammam and Mr Warner have faced crime allegations.
In 2011, Mr Bin Hammam, a Fifa executive cabinet member for Qatar, was
forced to renounce after apropos inextricable in a temptation liaison in the
Caribbean during a competition for a Fifa presidency.
Mr Bin Hammam was criminialized for life by Fifa after being found to have offered
$40,000 (£25,000) in bribes to Caribbean football officials. He later
managed to overturn this anathema during a Court of Arbitration for Sport.
A new review into his financial exchange that antiquated behind to his time
in assign of Asian football was launched by Fifa’s ethics committee, and
this led to a new life anathema in Dec 2012.
Mr Warner was also held adult in a liaison and quiescent from all football
activities, including his purpose as Fifa vice-president.
Mr Bin Hammam is exclusively rich and runs several companies. According
to a Kemco website, he has been a solitary renter of a organisation since
1985. The company’s website states that a organisation has a “good repute and
has turn a heading Electro-Mechanical Contracting Co in Doha”. From the
pictures, it appears that a organisation’s work centres around
Evidence submitted to Parliament’s culture, media and competition name committee
in May 2011 purported that Qatar had offering payments of adult to $1.5 million to
members of a Fifa executive cabinet to secure votes. The submission,
that was done public, named 3 former Fifa officials and quoted a former
worker of a Qatar bid who claimed that income offers were done for votes.
However, dual months later, a whistleblower who done a claims retracted
them and pronounced that she built them out of sourness during a approach she was
treated by a bid.
Michael Garcia, a US attorney, is now conducting an review for a Fifa
ethics cabinet into behest for a 2018 and 2022 tournaments. His report
is approaching after this year.
The FBI is also concerned in an review into Mr Warner’s activities and
began examining payments done to him in 2011. Many of a payments are
accepted to describe to income Mr Warner, and other officials, perceived from
a Caribbean Football Union, though as investigators have ploughed through
accounts and paperwork, their exploration has widened to enclosed other funds.
In Dec 2011, The Telegraph disclosed that FBI officers had come to
Britain to talk members of England’s unsuccessful 2018 World Cup bid as part
of a their review into purported corruption.
Mr Warner and his family declined to comment.
In a statement, a Qatari Supreme Committee for Delivery Legacy said:
“The 2022 Bid Committee particularly adhered to Fifa’s behest regulations in
correspondence with their formula of ethics.
“The Supreme Committee for Delivery Legacy and a individuals
concerned in a 2022 Bid Committee are unknowingly of any allegations
surrounding business exchange between private individuals.”
Mr Bin Hammam did not respond to calls requesting comment.
