Wyclef Jean faces criminal probe over Haiti charity

Filed under: Charity — Direct Sponsor @ 2:08 pm

Wyclef Jean, the hip-hop artist and former candidate for the presidency of Haiti, said yesterday he was “committed to ensuring that things are made right” amid news of a criminal investigation into the finances of his personal charity.

The musician’s lawyer, Avi Schick, confirmed that Jean’s Haitian aid organisation, Yele, went out of business in August, leaving a trail of legal disputes and unpaid debts. Regulators in the US, where it was registered, are now attempting to establish how the non-profit organisation burned through $16m (£10m) in public donations in just over two years.
