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.

Six years after the earthquake, a majority of Haiti is still in disrepair. In last March, some Haitians protested outside of the Clinton Foundation in New York. As per their claim 'Clinton Foundation' has stolen ¡°billions of dollars¡± which was meant to help rebuild Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. In an earlier protest in January, they had alleged that the Foundation wasted money more than $10 billion and awarded contracts to non-Haitian companies where Haiti was used as a cover to receive kickbacks. The activists claimed that Bill Clinton stole that amount of money through the 'Haiti Reconstruction Commission' which was headed by none other than himself and the evidence of these crimes, over 32,000 emails, were deleted by Hillary Clinton from her email account which was connected to a privately-owned server, instead of government email accounts maintained on secured federal servers. A book published in March 2015, was titled as "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.¡± The book investigates the connections between the Clintons' wealth, the Clinton Foundation, and decisions Hillary Clinton made as the Secretary of State.
