CIFA, FIFA partner to look into allegations of Webb taking cash

The man in charge of local football says the investigation has begun to see if there’s any truth to the allegations that former CIFA President Jeffrey Webb took money from CIFA.

Acting Cayman Islands Football Association President Bruce Blake says CIFA is partnering with FIFA to pour through past audits.

Blake says the money at the centre of the allegations normally would not have been given directly to CIFA, rather to a contractor to perform work on behalf of CIFA.

The allegations were made during former CIFA Treasurer Canover Watson’s testimony in court earlier this week. He’s on trial for another matter.

“Unfortunately we’re in a difficult environment,” Blake said. “We’re taking it seriously and we’re trying to address all points and deal with all matters in a professional matter.”

Webb has not been charged in any way specifically relating to these allegations of taking money earmarked for CIFA.

“I contacted FIFA and had a discussion with them about it,” Blake said. “So we’re going to look into it and FIFA’s going to look into it to see exactly what was the situation, what is the situation, and go from there.”
