Jack Warner's extradition to the United States delayed

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad -- A court is giving former FIFA vice president Jack Warner more time to fight being extradited from Trinidad and Tobago to the United States to face corruption charges.

A chief magistrate on Monday set a new hearing date of Aug. 28 after a government lawyer requested more time to examine the extradition request from the U.S. Justice Department.

The U.S. sent its request last week.

Warner is resisting extradition on U.S. charges of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering in the FIFA corruption case. He is out on bail and leading his political party's campaign for Sept. 7 general elections.

Attorney General Gavin Nicholas has said Warner's case has "absolutely nothing to do with politics."

Trinidad legal experts believe Warner's extradition could take years to resolve.
