Ban Official Accused of Routinely Sexually Abusing Children From Participation in Sports

Target: Gianni Infantino, President of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA)

Goal: Demand a lifetime ban for soccer official accused of sexually abusing and attacking children and minors in his care.

According to victims, president of the Haitian Football Federation, Yves-Jean Bart, has been a prolific sexual predator since taking office in 2000, using his access to young soccer players at a training center outside of the Haitian capital at Port-au-Prince to coerce them into sexual activities. Both victims and former employees state that coaches and sports officials were complicit in persuading girls below the age of 18 to submit to sex with Bart. Many of his victims have said that, on the training center’s grounds and far from home, they felt they had little choice but to accept. Bart and his employees also allegedly confiscated the passports of the girls he abused, both to prevent them from fleeing and to extort their silence.

Even under a 90-day ban on involvement in sports, Bart has reportedly continued to attack young women, leading some to question how thoroughly the ban is being enforced. Regardless of enforcement, Bart appears to have been proven beyond reasonable doubt to be a serious danger to young women in his presence, and should be removed from office immediately. Sign the petition letter below to demand that he receive a full lifetime ban from positions of authority in athletics.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Infantino,

Revelations of Haitian Football Federation president Yves-Jean Bart’s alleged extensive abuses of young women who trusted him should be outrageous to all who learn of them, yet Bart continues to occupy a position of power, reportedly using it to commit further abuses against numerous women under the age of 18.

At this point, it appears there can be no doubt that Bart is a threat to young athletes. It falls to you and other soccer officials to ensure that this man is immediately removed from his position and kept away from those he has harmed for decades. I demand you enact a full lifetime ban on Yves-Jean Bart to prevent him hurting any further victims.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Dear Mr. Infantino,

    … a full lifetime ban from positions of authority in athletic, alright — but, AFTER HE AT LEAST SPENDS 10 YEARS IN JAIL.
    IT IS INCREDIBLE THAT THIS PEDOPHILE HAS ONLY BEEN DISCOVERED NOW – JUST THINK OF HOW MANY GIRLS MUST HAVE BEEN ABUSED BY THIS DEGENERATE – AND IT IS ALSO UNBELIEVABLE THAT HE IS STILL HOLDING HIS POSITON AS “PRESIDENT’ …
