The recent expulsion of the U-17 Haitian football team from Jamaica has generated controversy and protest in Haiti. The Haitian Football Federation has released an official report about the incident. You can read the original French report here.

Myrtha Désulmé has produced an Engish translation of the report, and kindly allowed me to post it as well: you can download it here.

The details are significant and help explain the strong reaction within the Haitian footballing community and the broader population to the incident.
