Journalist faces defamation lawsuit for exposing sexual abuse accusations

21 Mar 2023

The French journalist Romain Molina is sued for documenting sexual abuse against girls players by the former/then-still president of the Haiti football federation Yves Jean-Bart. In an attempt to silence the survivors and limit the freedom of press, the Haitian football federation utilises the French court. The former president filed a complaint with a Paris court in 2020. This is in line with a pattern of sweeping gender-based violence under the rug.
