Jack Warner’s attorneys are challenging the decision, stating that Trinidad's Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi missed the September 16 date for signing off on the documents.

Trinidad's Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi has signed the documents to allow the extradition of embattled former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner.

Warner was told of the development in court today.

However, Warner’s attorneys are challenging the decision, stating that Al-Rawi missed the September 16 date for signing off on the documents.

They say Warner should be discharged.

However, the state countered that the documents were now signed, making way for the extradition matter to proceed and there should be no discharge.

Deputy Chief Magistrate Mark Wellington asked for time to go through the documents and adjourned until Friday.

Warner is one of 14 people indicted on a series of criminal charges in the United States, including racketeering, fraud, and money laundering, related to their time at FIFA.
