first_img“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.”Haitian police have launched a probe into the allegations, first revealed late last month, and a judge has already summoned several federation employees to answer questions.According to young women quoted in an article published by The Guardian in late April, Jean-Bart raped multiple underage players over the years.Saying they had been pressured to remain silent, the alleged victims told the newspaper on condition of anonymity that at least two underage players had to get abortions after Jean-Bart assaulted them. FIFA on Monday suspended the president of Haiti’s football federation for 90 days pending an investigation into allegations he sexually abused teenage girls at the national training center.Yves Jean-Bart, 73, categorically denies accusations that he raped several young female footballers at a training facility outside Port-au-Prince over the course of the past five years.”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,” FIFA said Monday in a statement. “We think that this is a good decision by FIFA because we realized that Yves Jean-Bart and his cartel can overshadow any judicial investigation,” said Marie-Rosy Auguste Ducena of the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH).Criticizing the code of silence that she says hangs over the sports industry, Ducena noted that “rumors of sexual bargains for football benefits have been circulating in the country for a long time.”Jean-Bart has led the country’s football federation for two decades. His re-election in February for a sixth term was a mere formality — he ran unopposed.When contacted by AFP for comment, he did not respond.center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_imgBanned ivory, animal meat among items seized in international raid Kenya Revenue Authority has suspended the officer who handled shipment worth about Sh570m in ivory and animal products seized in Singapore on Tuesday.KRA said they were interrogating other port-based staff and working with other agencies to apprehend the culprits. “So far, the truck owner has provided statements to the investigation team but the driver is still at large.The directors of the exporting company have absconded but are being sought,” said Commissioner General John Njiraini in a statement on Wednesday.Njiraini said the Authority has revised its procedures to include scanning of cargo previously considered “low risk”.“It’s worth noting that striking a balance between security concerns and the imperative to facilitate cross-border trade will continue to pose challenges until effective non-intrusive cargo inspection mechanisms are implemented.We are working with the government on a comprehensive programme to upgrade scanning infrastructure at our ports of entry so as to help achieve this goal.”Related Ivory worth 120,000 USD seized in Kenya’s coastal regioncenter_img Mozambique burns seized ivory in anti-poaching drivelast_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Akpom pens Middlesbrough loan deal Brentford have had a bid rejected for £5 million plus add-ons for Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun. The Gunners turned down an offer and the Championship promotion hopefuls could face shock competition for Balogun, 18, from AC Milan with the Serie A side scouring the market as they target young English talent. Prolific England under-18 striker Balogun has come to the attention of both clubs after two especially prolific seasons at youth level for Arsenal. New York born Balogun, who moved to England when he was two and whose parents are of Nigerian descent, is rated as one of the best young attacking talents in England. He scored 28 goals in 28 games at youth level for Arsenal last season, including 25 in just 19 under-18 games. His scoring streak has continued this term with seven goals and four assists in 12 games at under-23 level, during a campaign disrupted by niggling injury. Balogun is the next English youngster in the sights of Milan, whose CEO is former Arsenal chief Ivan Gazidis. Milan are also looking in England for a full-back and have identified Nottingham Forest’s Matt Cash as a target, having also looked at Derby’s Jayden Bogle and Wigan’s former Everton full-back Antonee Robinson, who was born in Milton Keynes but now plays for the USA.Tags: ArsenalFolarin BalogunSerie Alast_img read more
