Former Trinidadian Government Minister Jack Warner has lost his appeal over the dismissal of his lawsuit challenging a United States extradition request.
Three Judges of the Court of Appeal upheld the decision of Justice James Aboud to dismiss his judicial review lawsuit in September, 2017.
Their decision does not mean that Warner's extradition proceedings will finally begin as the judges granted a stay pending the filing of his appeal to the Privy Council.
Warner is challenging the procedure adopted by the Office of the Attorney General in signing off on the US's request for his extradition, made in May 2015.
73 year old Warner, who is a former Fifa vice-president, is accused of 12 charges related to fraud, racketeering and engaging in illegal wire transfers.
The offences are alleged to have taken place in the United States, T&T and other jurisdictions between 1990 and June 2011 when Warner quit Fifa.
