FIFA has extended by nineteen days, the provisional ban on the president of Haiti’s football federation, Yves Jean-Bart, pending an investigation into allegations he sexually abused teenage girls for five years at the national training centre outside the capital, Port-Au-Prince.
FIFA says its investigatory chamber has expanded the investigations by opening formal proceedings against Nela Joseph, the girls’ supervisor at the city’s national technical center, and Wilner Etienne, the federation’s technical director.
Both Joseph and Etienne have also been banned from taking part in any football activity at both national and international levels for 90 days.
Jean-Bart has led the country’s football federation for two decades.

Barcelona have agreed to let striker Luis Suarez join La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.
