Warner: Has been suspended by Fifa but has no plans to meet executives
Jack Warner claims he has no plans to meet Fifa investigators probing bribery allegations.
The suspended Fifa vice-president is alleged, along with Mohamed Bin Hammam, to have paid bribes totalling 1million US dollars to Caribbean associations.
The world governing body has agreed to move the venue of the interviews with those Caribbean Football Union (CFU) members who refused to travel to Miami but Warner will not be among those quizzed by investigators.
"I have not received any summons asking me to speak with them [the investigators] nor do I plan to do so," he said.
Meanwhile, the president of the Barbados Football Association, Ronald Jones, has insisted neither he nor his officials were offered any bribes by Bin Hamman or Warner.
He said in a statement: "None of our delegates were offered any inducements or gifts to support any of the candidates during the meeting on May 10.
"Our delegates listened to the speeches by Mohamed Bin Hamman, who was there to make a case as to why he would need the support of Fifa members of the CFU.
"The Barbados Football Association was made aware that the trip and accommodation were sponsored by Mohamed Bin Hamman under the auspices of the CFU.
"The BFA did not and does not see this as akin to bribery or any inducements as in the past trips by Caribbean delegates to meetings have been sponsored by the organisation and agency that wanted to put on the programme."
