The President of the Cayman Islands Football Association late today (19 January) said that CIFA will seek legal action if it’s proven former President Jeff Webb did use money earmarked for CIFA for personal reasons.
Blake was responding to comments made by former CIFA Treasurer Canover Watson in court. Mr. Watson is on trial for another matter but testified that Webb took FIFA grant money meant for CIFA and used it to help build a mansion in the US.
Blake responded to the allegations with the following:
“I certainly was not aware of this transaction but will work to ensure that we get to the bottom of it and that it is rectified, if correct. I have put a lot of time, energy and resources into football in Cayman and am quite angry to know that money that was supposed to go to local football may have been diverted.
“I am at a loss for words and very sad and heart broken. I was not aware of this and will work with FIFA to determine if correct.”
Blake says CIFA’s Executive Committee is scheduled to meet tomorrow.
