The court ruled that Warn er a politician in Trinidad and Tobago should pay compensation to former cabinet colleague Anand Ramlogan for defaming him.

The judge ordered Warner to pay the money for alleging on a political platform in October 2013 that the former attorney general had corruptly obtained 51 properties.

In a 57-page judgment, Justice Mohammed ruled that Warner had failed to provide proof of his allegation.

However attorneys for Warner who is facing corruption charges for his role in the latest FIFA scandal say they will appeal the decision.
