The investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of Federation of International Football Association [FIFA] has banned the president of the Haitian Football Federation from all Football-Related Activities.
Yves Jean-Bart, known as “Dadou has been the president of the Federation Haïtienne De Football (FHF) since 2000.
He was accused of sexually abusing young female footballers at the country’s national training centre around April but he clearly denied the accusations.
The FHF president said it is never possible for females to be sexually abused at the training centres looking at the principles of education, physical structures and continuous awareness at the training centre.
He denied every accusation saying the charges against him is “clearly a manoeuvre to destabilise the FHF, the character of the president and his family”.
The investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee began the investigations to ascertain the truth about the allegations in mid-April. Today, FIFA through its Code of Ethics has found him to be guilty and handed him a 90 days ban from all football-related activities.
“In accordance with articles 84 and 85 of the FIFA Code of Ethics, the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has provisionally banned Mr Yves Jean-Bart, President of the Haitian Football Federation (FHF), from all football-related activities at both national and international level, for a period of 90 days.
’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.” FIFA said.
