Tim Kee stunned by FIFA officials’ arrest - EntornoInteligente

Entornointeligente.com / Tim Kee stunned by FIFA officials’ arrest / News day / The US Department of Justice yesterday revealed a 47-count indictment against the officials, alleging an elaborate 24-year scheme involving racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies.

Tim Kee and Webb were in Zurich, Switzerland ahead of tomorrow’s FIFA presidential elections.

In a radio interview yesterday (Power 102 FM), Tim Kee, who has been the TTFA boss since November 2012, said, “one thing I can say is that those legal folks have been quite professional, and there is nothing to suggest that anything was happening.”

Tim Kee, who is also the Mayor of Port-of-Spain and a Guardian Life insurance executive, continued, “that was kept extremely quiet and private. So there was no expectation. Everybody was found in a state of shock.

The TTFA president admitted, “(on Tuesday) night I was talking to the president of Concacaf, and some of his vice-presidents. There was nothing in their demeanour or what was said to suggest any feeling or suspicion that something was in the making.”

Warner served as Concacaf and CFU (Caribbean Football Union) president, and FIFA vice-president, for 21 years, as well as special adviser of the then TTFF (Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation) until he left his football positions in June 20 2011, in the wake of a FIFA corruption investigation.

Meanwhile, the TTFA will be staying silent, with regards to any public pronouncements, on the latest controversy to hit FIFA.

“We acknowledge this investigation and hope it will lead to improved governance in the world’s most popular sport of which our organisation is actively involved,” said the TTFA in a media release.

“The TTFA will give this ongoing investigation the respect it deserves and, as a result, will refrain from making further statements on the ongoing investigation at this time.”

The TTFA, according to the media release, “wishes to reiterate that it is currently involved in a process of reforming and re-organising its governance, organisational structures, and practices in striving to meet ever-increasing expectations of transparency, accountability and performance from a wide range of stakeholders.”
