FIFA officials arrested for stealing money meant for Haiti earthquake

FIFA officials arrested for stealing money meant for Haiti earthquake

Here are the FIFA officials involved stealing $750,000 meant for Haiti earthquake. Jack Warner, Jeffrey Webb, Alfredo Hawit and Juan Angel Napout.

Jack Warner, a former FIFA Executive Committee member, and President of CONCACAF until his suspension and eventual resignation in 2011, and his successor Jeffrey Webb from Cayman Islands, have been accused of misappropriating money amounting around £500,000 ($750,000) intended to help the 2010 Haiti earthquake victims. Jack Warner is a Trinidad and Tobago politician and businessman. Jack Warner and Jeffrey Webb have committed many and various acts of misconduct repeatedly and have pleaded guilty to seven charges. As per US attorney general Loretta Lynch, their extent of betrayal is truly outrageous. Jeffrey Webb was arrested in last May, but he is out on bail. On May 27th, Jack Warner also surrendered himself to police in his native Trinidad, but after spending a night in custody, was later released on bail. Two more FIFA officials, Alfredo Hawit (Honduras) and Juan Angel Napout (Paraguay), were arrested on December 3, 2015, in a widening bribery case during a pre-dawn raid at the Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich on suspicion "of accepting bribes of millions of dollars". This was the second raid in this downtown Zurich hotel after May 27, 2015, that sparked the FIFA corruption crisis.

As per news sources, the US Justice Department has filed charges on bribes and kickbacks against 16 FIFA officials amounting £130 million ($200 million) following an investigation by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CI). Danny Jordaan, the Mayor of Port Elizabeth, as well as president of the South African Football Association, once admitted of paying $10 million to a football body led by Jack Warner in 2008 for hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

FIFA has officially confirmed the allegation that Warner, who is presently fighting extradition from Trinidad to the USA, has diverted a fund of $750,000 provided by FIFA and the Korean Football Association intended for victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

Red Cross used Haiti donations to reduce deficit and pay overhead

Here is a picture of several Haitians, each awarded a box of goodies from the Red Cross. They were the charity organization to receive the largest amount of donations for relief efforts to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. However the Red Cross used most of the fund to reduce their own accumulated deficits and pay their foreign employees huge salaries.

Red Cross steals Hundreds of Millions from Haiti Earthquake Relief

When Haiti was blown off its foundations by the 2010 earthquake, the international community responded, donating hundreds of millions of dollars. The Red Cross was the biggest donor at half a billion.

Suspicious because only six homes had been built in the last five years by the Red Cross, ProPublica investigated, discovering the agency used $100 million to lower their debts and another one-third of donations to cover their overhead.
