The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation has signalled that it intends to sue former FIFA vice president Jack Warner, to recover millions of dollars in funds, including those earmarked as aid for Haiti, which remains unaccounted for.

Derek Ali, attorney for the federation, told a judge that he planned to file a lawsuit and accused Warner of not releasing the audited accounts.

High Court Judge Devindra Rampersad then ordered Ali to send Warner a protocol letter advising him of the federationís intentions.

The federation has said that Warner controlled a bank account in its name that was set to receive US$750,000 pledged by FIFA and South Korean soccer head Chung Mong-joon toward soccer rebuilding projects in Haiti.

Haitian officials recently told Britainís Sunday Times that they received only US$60,000 and FIFA said it was temporarily freezing its funding to Trinidad and Tobago.
