ZÜRICH (Dagbladet): Today FIFA's Ethics Committee is gathered here in Zürich. On top of their agenda is the ticket deal between Jack Warner and notorious Norwegian black market company Euroteam, which Dagbladet revealed last year, and BBC Panorama featured in their «FIFA's Dirty Secrets» programme.

Dagbladet is told that FIFA has done an extensive investigation into the Warner case - gathering documentation showing how the Vice president arranged tickets for the very same company, and the very same individuals, FIFA several times have taken to court.

Huge profit Towards the end of 2009 a black market ticket dealer contacted Warner personally.

He asked Warner if it was possible to get hold of tickets under the table for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The Caribbean Football Union (CFU) ordered tickets for several WC matches, including the final. A receipt for the order was sent to the agent, who passed it on to the black market company. Dagbladet is in possession of the receipt.

The money was to be paid to a SWIFT account belonging to the CFU.

Warner's profit is said to be at about 60 percent, with the total deal amounting to about 1,5 million Norwegian kroner, almost 260 000 USD, including the middleman's commission.
