Mintas refutes claims in lawsuit

One former Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) leader refutes claims in a lawsuit that she accused a superior of being part of the corruption scandal that rocked CONCACAF.

Dr. Laila Mintas is CONCACAF’s former Director of Sports Integrity and worked here at CONCACAF’s Cayman Islands office.

She resigned from the post in November of 2015.

A lawsuit recently filed by the former head of CONCACAF’s local office, Lerina Bright, claims that Mintas told staff that Bright was involved in Jeffrey Webb’s illicit dealings, leading to her unfair dismissal.

Webb in May of 2015 was arrested as part of the global football corruption scandal. He pleaded guilty in November in the United States to seven charges of fraud.

Mintas says there is not much she can say on the issue as it is an ongoing court case, but she maintains the allegations made against her are not true.
