The 2006 Germany World Cup bonus dispute had another adjournment today and will resume on 2 July 2012 with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) aiming to convince High Court Judge Devindra Rampersad that he should recuse himself from the case.
Wired868 was informed by a legal source that TTFF lawyer Derek Ali asked for an adjournment until August but was turned down.
The TTFF’s request for Justice Rampersad to withdraw from the case is a spin off from a contempt of court application made by 13 aggrieved former World Cup player against its general secretary Richard Groden and ex-president Oliver Camps.
And the contempt charge is a by-product of the sole purpose of the ongoing High Court proceedings, which is to get Works Minister and ex-FIFA Vice President Jack Warner to present accounting statements to the High Court that would reveal what the players are owed.
