CONCACAF appoints integrity committee

New York:

Soccer's regional governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean has established an integrity committee following the departures of former leaders Jack Warner and Chuck Blazer.


CONCACAF said on Thursday the new group "will have oversight of all investigations pertaining to past practices from the previous leadership."

The chairman will be former Barbados Chief Justice David Anthony Cathcart Simmons. He will be joined by retired PricewaterhouseCoopers partner Ernesto Hempe and former U.S. District Judge Ricardo Urbina, who retired in May.

Warner resigned as CONCACAF president in June 2011 after Blazer accused Warner and then-Asian confederation head Mohamed bin Hammam of attempting to bribe Caribbean delegates $40,000 each to vote for Bin Hammam in the FIFA presidential election. Blazer resigned as CONCACAF's secretary general in December.

Jeffrey Webb of the Cayman Islands succeeded Warner in May. Webb said last week that an audit of CONCACAF will not be completed until next year.
