The Swiss justice ministry on Thursday approved the extradition of Nicaragua's Julio Rocha to the United States over charges he accepted bribes.
In a statement on his official Facebook page, former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner said he was nonplussed by the ban, which came four years after he was removed from office.
Julio Rocha, the former head of the Nicaraguan Football Federation who was one of seven FIFA officials detained in Switzerland in May, has agreed to be extradited to his home country, the Swiss justice ministry said Friday.
The assets put up to guarantee the $20 million bond include cash deposits of $3.3 million, to be made by October 1, and three properties in the United States owned by his sister and a close friend.
A U.S. prosecutor confirmed Friday during a pretrial hearing that former FIFA Vice President Jeffrey Webb was in the U.S. to face charges as part of a massive corruption scandal.
While former Costa Rican soccer federation president Eduardo Li remains locked up in a Swiss prison, his lawyer says he's optimistic Li will not be extradited to the United States for trial.
