Trinidad and Tobago: Jack Warner ¿‘Robin Hood’ or Corrupt Politician?

Residents of Trinidad and Tobago have mixed feelings about former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner. Some believe he is a kind of ‘Robin Hood’ while others accuse him of dragging the country’s name through the mire. In a telephone interview with Cody Weddle, journalist Jabari Fraser confirms that allegations of Warner stealing Haiti relief funds are nothing new. Part of the money he received was used to fund the 2010 election campaign of the current Prime Minister, Kamla Persad-Bissessar, who was a strong supporter of Warner, although now that he has formed his own political party, they are bitter enemies. It’s true, said Fraser, that many people do regard Warner as a kind of “Robin Hood” because he has used a lot of his resources to be a friend of grass roots communities, and he has been very supportive of the constituents that he represents and has done what he can to help the people. teleSUR
