When you think of nations with a storied footballing history, you might not immediately think of Haiti.

But in 1974, the small island state became the first Caribbean country to represent at a World Cup.

Since then, the history of the country has been rocked with tragedy and scandal.

Football hasn’t been immune from this. Earlier this year, allegations were made that the country’s President of the Football Federation, Yves Jean-Bart, had sexually abused young female footballers.

In this episode, we trace this harrowing case through the words of one of the journalists who uncovered it.
