Ex-CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb in Zurich hours before his arrest by Swiss authorities

(CNS): The former FIFA vice president and local football boss, Jeffrey Webb, has been charged with fraud and breach of trust in relation to the local hospital card payment case. Canover Watson and Miriam Rodrigues are also facing further charges in relation to the ongoing local investigation into the CarePay Card contract, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)b said in a statement Friday. While Watson and Rodrigues are expected to appear in court Tuesday, a warrant has been issued for Webb’s arrest.

 

Officials said they were expecting to begin extradition proceedings to answer these charges, as Webb remains on remand in Switzerland, where he is already fighting extradition to the US in connection with the massive FIFA corruption probe.

Following months of speculation that Webb and others were also under investigation in relation to the $11 million contract award, a short statement was released Friday afternoon by ACC Chair David Baines, who is also the commissioner of police.

Canover Watson

Watson and Webb have been jointly charged with two counts of conspiracy to defraud which is contrary to common law, one count of breach of trust under the 2008 anti-corruption law and a charge of conspiracy to convert criminal property contrary to both the penal code and the proceeds of crime law. Watson’s former PA, Miriam Rodrigues, has also been charged with one count of conspiracy to convert criminal property.

Watson and Rodrigues are already scheduled to go on trial in November. The crown had successfully postponed an earlier trial in May after a trillion bytes of digital information was handed over to investigators in April in connection with the case from Watson’s former employer, Admiral Administration.

Watson already faces numerous charges in relation to the case, including six counts of money laundering in relation to around US$169,000 over an 18-month period between December 2010 and June 2012, when he was chair of the Health Services Authority (HSA) board. He is also charged with conflict of interest, failing to disclose a pecuniary interest, breach of trust and fraud.

Miriam Rodrigues faces fraud and money laundering charges.

The crown alleges Watson has direct connections to AIS and that he helped to secure the company two lucrative contacts at the hospital while he was the HSA board’s chair, which forms the basis of the corruption accusations. Prosecutors say that he created the bank accounts for the firm and told the principals what to say and do, which they claim is supported by email communication.

Both Watson and Rodrigues have denied all charges.

Officials have not yet made any claims regarding the part they say Webb played in the local corruption case but it is understood that Webb was a close business associate of Watson and had a number of companies together. Watson was also a FIFA official before he was suspended from one of the organisations committees after he was charged in the local CarePay case.

The details of the charges against Webb are likely to remain under wraps for some considerable time as he is unlikely to be returned to Cayman anytime soon. On Thursday, an official extradition application was filed in Switzerland by the US authorities for Webb, who has been detained in a Zürich jail since he was arrested with six other FIFA officials in May.

Given the circumstances, the application by the Cayman authorities will take second place when filed against the background of the US request. Webb is understood to be fighting the extradition to the United States but there has been no indication whether he will also fight extradition to Cayman.

    Yes finally got three Caymanians to justify their presence here After 50 years of them running things here and controlling and banking the money from numerous world financial scandals and drug traffickers. Wake up Caymanians you ain’t above the law and should no your place! Laundering money is above you pay grade Capiche?

  2. Sharkey says:

    I think that it would be at least about 15 to 20 years before Cayman would get it’s extradition order heard . This might be a ploy on Webb part.

    • Mary Hastings says:

      As has been reiterated many times, there are apparently issues here, but in all of these comments and editorials I have yet to see an acknowledgement that some 50 percent of the population comes from outside the islands (on work permits). This is an important factor, as no one, including the handicapped Compass (missing some essrntial mental screws) has any legitimate way to determine the immigration status of offenders. So there is no way to determine with any accuracy if offenders are “steeped” in corruption or not — another reason to debunk that rather unfortunate, unfounded editorial.

          Thanks, Andy, at 9:50 — no one is “hating expats” — you are missing the point. The poster was reflecting on the editorial that condemned all Caymanians without having any evidence but flimsy rumours in a multi-cultural diverse population. This is a hard fact, and you don’t have to be on either side of the great divide to appreciate it. Unless, of course, you are more comfortable with name-calling rather than evidence-based debate.

          To all those who get defensive when we remind people that we are a diverse pluralistic society whose workforce is 50% local, but are quite willing to see Legge’s wholesale condemnation — based on rumour and innuendo — of the local population as “truth,” I have one word, “stupid.”

          Actually, that was a very sensible, balanced post. So unless you say that all crime in Cayman is committed by Caymanians you are an expat-hater? I think you have got it turned around. And from the number of likes you got we have got a real problem on our hands.

        I like to compare the court lists with ancestry.com and seek the slightest hint of furriners over five generations for any mixed blood. If I cannot find any readily, I go by the nationality and origin of their pets or car. If that fails, I blame it on the status grants,evil spirits or outside influence from expats.

      • Duncan norvell says:

        When you have no indigenous, true native population, 100 per cent of your population comes from outside of these islands so your research is pretty meaningless straight away.

        • Anonymous says:

          To both Duncan and Judean People’s front: the poster is simply trying to convey, obviously unsuccessfully, that you simply cannot lay rumoured, alleged and uncorroborated charges of corruption at the feet of any one particular population group, racial or ethnic or otherwise, particularly in our diverse multicural mix. That was the fallacy of the Compass’ argument that have led us down the road of arguing a fallacy.

          This is sad, as the Compass should be relied upon for thought leadership.

          What is important is the content of character, not lineage of ancestors, and no ethnic or racial group has a corner on character — we have all sinned and come short.

          So whether you are born here six generations ago or migrated here last week, it does not matter when it comes to character and the potential for corruption or sainthood. And we simply cannot judge without evidence before a court of law as to any particular member of any group.

          This allegation by the Compass was so wrong! As stupid and unworthy as the basis for serious debate as Donald Trump’s charges about Mexican immigrants to the United States.

          But it does trigger a fire storm — as Legge did and as Donald Trump is now doing — not because it is worthy of debate but because It is so outrageous.

          So please stop saying that Legge was telling the truth, you all — Legge’s argument is based on a false premise — literally a falsehood. And he knows it and his editorial staff know it.

      To all the posters implying that Webb is now charged only because of his fall from grace — not at all true. As plagued by inefficiencies as we are in both the prosecution and the RCIPS, and as much as I am tantatalized by conspiracy theories as the next person, I still believe that they are going by the law on this. They have now tied up the case against Webb and are ready to prosecute. Let us not overthink this.

        4:28 pm: I actually do not accept that the upstanding, law abiding citizens are in the minority. And Caymanians should not — this view is all based on faulty arguments by the Compass based on the same reasoning that led Donald Trump to condemn all Mexican immigrants for unspeakable crimes, with the lame proviso that he expects that “some” or a “few” ( forgot which term he used) are law abiding. These types of faulty arguments have no place in serious debate — and it is sad — and even despicable given their professional responsibilities — that we have a daily newspaper that cannot exercise greater care in how it editorialises. Or perhaps it is simply too difficult to hide your true colours.

        Legge was more “all of you” rather than all of us. He didn’t include his esteem self or any member of his editorial board in the list of people steeped in a culture of corruption. However, when it suited his liking (being onstage with Ronald Reagan) he called Cayman “My country”.

    Why did it take so long to name him as an alleged accomplice or co-conspitor in the CarePay case? I hope that the “usual tricks” of Cayman Islands (Government) wasn’t trying to shield him from further prosecution – for as long as they possibly could.

    Did the FBI and USDOJ uncover more suspicious activity linked to Webb & Watson’s bank accounts that led to the CarePay Contract, that may highlight incompetence and/or corruption? Watson has been charged with fraud and money laundering for quite some time now, and the CI Legal Department is only now issuing an arrest warrant to other local affiliates i.e. Webb– Really?

    Before Webb left for Switzerland with his Political buddies, he was still an admired public figure. Watson had already been arrested while Webb was free to a globe trot until recently.

    • Anonymous says:

      No, actually there doesn’t. Every prosecution must be seen to have the same basis: upholding the law. Remember what happened the last time the apparent motives for a prosecution became public? It’s obvious what has happened here, at least it is to me. Webb has been charged now because it is now in the public interest to charge him. Before the US charges, to charge him in CarePay would have been to tear down one of our own for a peripheral role in a not terribly exciting local matter, threatening his position within CONCACAF and FIFA which was bringing a measurably huge amount of positive attention and tourism/investment dollars at a time when we sorely needed both. It would have been McKeeva’s arrest all over again, only much worse: “FIFA VP charged in Cayman Islands corruption case”. It would have fed the international narrative about FIFA corruption AND Cayman shadiness and brought an overwhelming amount of negative attention to us. It was not ‘in the public interest’ to charge him at that time. I’m sorry to say, but that is the way the world works. That does not mean that he was never going to be charged, though; we can only speculate in that regard.

      Contrast this with the present, where questions are being asked – quite properly – about how Fidelity and CIMA seemingly missed transfers, about the adequacy of the CIG response to the US charges, about why it took CIFA so very long to do anything about the situation, and the reasoning becomes quite clear. If we line up behind the US with charges of our own, we are insulated from the good majority of attacks we would otherwise receive from overseas. We are saying to the world: ‘can we have him back when you’re done, so we can throw our book at him too? He was one of our favourite sons, but we’re as disgusted as you are’. It’s in the public interest to do that, in fact it’s imperative for us to do that. We took a beating for the US charges; the best we can do is issue some of our own so that we can hold our heads high with the good guys. So there you go, that’s why.

These lawyers get paid well for facilitating this sort of racket that expose stakeholders to undue risk. Let them too face the music.

    People in Cayman is tired of discovering & contesting shady documents surrounding illicit dealings, where the courts too frequently favor the wrong, because their either too lazy, or conning, to give a fair and due process.

    Regardless of their i.e. lawyers notoriety, their board memberships or political affiliations they too should be expose for their unethical practices and the resulting damages caused to stakeholders. There is so much unethical behavior among these legal gurus’ that has cause the demise of persons directly and indirectly tied to case matters/disputes.

    Do these lawyers just prefer preparing documents (in clear violation of laws)? OR, do they just not understand the concept of (moral) integrity? OR, Did they fail, or were the absent for, their ethics exams – but were still awarded legal certifications?

      I agree with you 10:53. This should also apply to the Justice of the Peace and Notary Public Members who knowingly violate law and code of ethics by rubber stamping documents with business associates, for close relatives, or friends for personal gains, or with their own personal agenda.

      There are far too many documents existing in the Cayman Islands sphere that allude to the same bribery practices that Webb and Canova have been charged with. Some have been lodged with the courts and cases stalled by attorneys’ and court administrators who are protecting reputations by prohibiting prosecution.

      And there is no task action or oversight committees to monitor the practices of administrators or officials within the judicial system, therefore criminals at varying levels of the institution and it processes prevail.

      You know what, if Jeff is guilty he will have to face the consequences for his actions. If he is innocent then his sufferings will make him stronger. None of us here on the island or elswhere really know exactly all that transpires but that still does not give the Editor of the Compass or anyone else the right to condem the entire population of the Cayman Islands. I know Jeff’s family, I know that his mother of blessed memory worked very hard to provide for him and his sister. I know that she did not teach him how to be dishonest or corrupt as some of you might think. Jeff did well for most of his life, he made his mark and made Cayman proud in the football realm. Perhaps he got greedy, perhaps he got involved in unscrupulous activities. I don’t know what happened. He should have known better but stuff like this happens all over the world. It is wrong but you better believe he won’t be the last unfortunately. Cayman did not write the book on crime , we are struggling with it as every other country / island in the world and insulting each other will never fix it. What we need to do, is each one determine in our heart that we will not be dishonest, we will not tell a lie, we will not mistreat any one. Honesty as well as dishonesty comes in all shades, all nationalities if we could do that we would soon realise that the world around us is changing. You will probably say that will never happen and you know what it won’t if we do not try. You know what, goodness and evil is like a ripple. When a pebble is thrown in to a body of water it causes a ripple effect. You can watch as it keeps going and going, it never stops.

Regardless of what you feel about Jeff Webb he is a darn good person, but as usual Caymanians only know you when you are in apposition to hand out to them. It’s a shame how Caymanians talk about their own. When Jeff Webb was where he was – dragging those whose who disliked him all their lives because of envy within the local foot ball, those who dis-liked him because he is the type of person that will excel no matter what. And you know why he excelled ?because he did not let critics drag him down. Jeff Webb has his country at heart it plain to see. You never walked in his shoes – you will never understand why a man like him fell from grace, you do not know what his surroundings were that perhaps has led him to all this . BUT I WILL GUARNTEE YOU JEFF WEBB WILL RISE AGAIN- Why he has a forgiving heart – and when it over I hope you all will shut up and start supporting your families and be of some use to your community. Ask God to change your heart for the better

            Jeff was and is a jerk couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Only liked some in football that agreed with every word he had to say. Still the law says he is innocent until proven guilty.
