Former FIFA vice president Jack Warner has been investigated by U.S. prosecutors for the disappearance of money raised for victims of the 2010 Haiti Earthquake, the BBC reported on Tuesday.
Warner visited Haiti shortly after the 2010 disaster, which claimed 316,000 lives. The country is still grappling with a difficult rebuilding effort to this day. Upon seeing the devastation firsthand, Warner raised $750,000 from FIFA and the Korean Football Association, according to the BBC.
At the time, Warner, who donated $100,000 of his own money to earthquake relief, said, “We applaud their perseverance and look forward to working together to rebuild their football program and country.” via Huffington Post
