Haiti - FLASH : Yves Jean-Bart announces his return to the head of the Haitian Football Federation
Wednesday March 1st, 2023, two weeks after the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne (Switzerland), to cancel for insufficient evidence https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-38856-haiti-flash-the-court-of-arbitration-for-sport-cancels-the-sanctions-against-yves-jean-bart.html the decision of the Trial Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee of November 18 2020, imposing on the former President of the Haitian Football Federation (FHF), Yves Jean-Bart alias "Dadou" a life suspension from all football-related activity (administrative, sports and other) and a fine of 1 million of Swiss Franc, for having violated art. 23 (Protection of physical and mental integrity) and art. 25 (Abuse of power) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-32340-haiti-flash-yves-jean-bart-banned-for-life-from-football-by-fifa.html ; Yves Jean-Bart, in a press conference by videoconference, announced his intention to return to the head of the Haitian Football Federation.

Let's recall that this case began after allegations of sexual assault on several players, including minors, following an investigation by French investigative journalist Romain Molina published in the British newspaper "The Guardian" https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30677-haiti-flash-football-sexual-abuse-yves-jean-bart-counterattack.html . Should be noted that Romain Molina accused of defamation by "Dadou" https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-37332-icihaiti-justice-yves-jean-bart-alias-dadou-counter-attack.html will have to defend himself on March 27 next in front of the Paris Criminal Court.

"On Friday February 24, 2023, I informed FIFA of my return as President of the FHF given that the circumstances which had ruled me out were canceled by the CAS award of February 14, 2023" declared Yves Jean -Bart without specifying the date of this return. According to his lawyers, legally he is no longer suspended from practicing by FIFA, nothing prevents him from becoming President of the Federation again. "Dadou" intends to end his term shortened by FIFA and organize new elections in February 2024.

Furthermore, he stated that his lawyers were already working with FIFA to obtain compensation "[...] My lawyers are already working with FIFA to obtain compensation for the damage caused not only to me but also to the whole football family. In this sense, a letter was drafted by my lawyers on February 24, 2023. In general, claims for compensation must extend to any person or national or international institution involved in the accusations against me, especially since some reacted with rare virulence after notification of the CAS sentence."

Note that FIFA has still not commented on the decision taken by the CAS.
