Regional ex-soccer executives accused of fraud

Associated Press SHARE

PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP) —    A report by the ethics and integrity committee of soccer's regional governing body claims former secretary general Chuck Blazer enjoyed luxury apartments, a military-style Hummer vehicle and car insurance for a girlfriend as part of a lifestyle financed by the organization's money.

Blazer also is accused of violating U.S. and perhaps state and local tax by not submitting tax returns for the Confederation of North and Central American and Caribbean Football from 2004-10, according to the report released Friday that accuses him and former CONCACAF president Jack Warner of enriching themselves through fraud.

CONCACAF and FIFA, soccer's world governing body, have not decided what steps to take. The leader of Trinidad's main opposition party says he'll seek Warner's resignation as the island's national security minister.
