FIFA suspend Haiti FA chief over sexual abuse allegations

Fifa has provisionally suspended Yves Jean-Bart pending an investigation into claims the president of the Haiti Football Federation sexually abused young female footballers at the country’s national training centre.

Jean-Bart, known as “Dadou”, has strenuously denied allegations first made in the Guardian last month that he coerced several players at the Centre Technique National in Croix-des-Bouquets into having sex. The alleged incidents are understood to have taken place within the last five years.

“This sanction has been imposed in connection with ongoing investigations concerning Mr Jean-Bart. Mr Jean-Bart was notified of the decision today. The provisional sanction comes into force immediately.”
