ATTORNEY: NO NEED FOR AG TO RECUSE HIMSELF FROM WARNER’S EXTRADITION MATTER
Attorney Martin George does not believe AG Garvin Nicholas needs to recuse himself from extradition proceedings against former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner.
He said the AG is only presenting the material to the United States based on the Treaty between both countries, and was not involved in gathering the evidence against Mr. Warner.
As such, he does not believe that there is any personal interest.
“At the end of the day, this is a request from the United States Government so you are merely facilitating that process. The Attorney General of Trinidad and Tobago will not be the person who has gathered the evidence, collated the material or built a case for the extradition.”
