The legendary Cayman football fIgure, and ex-VP at FIFA, Jeffrey Webb has obtained a six-month delay in his sentencing in his American Federal criminal case. Should Caymanians be worried ?
Webb, whose May 2017 sentencing will be two years after he pled guilty in the massive FIFA corruption scandal, is most likely rendering Substantial Assistance to US law enforcement, which explains the delay, and his cooperation is not completed
Webb is probably either:
(1) Going to testify against former FIFA associates, at their trials, or
(2) Making new cases against others, which may not be FIFA-related.
Given that Webb, now under house arrest in a luxurious home he built in the US, with the proceeds of corruption, is also wanted in a Cayman Islands case, he may have evidence against his fellow Caymanians, which could result in their indictment, thus qualifying him for a probable shorter sentence in May. Most media don't like to discuss such matters, but they are part of the reality, when an individual is looking at 20 years on a money laundering charge in US District Court. Who will be next in the dock and in which country, the US or the Cayman Islands ?
