Multibit HD wallets have a bip32 seed if i'm not mistaken.

You should be able to use a tool such as https://iancoleman.io/bip39/ / https://github.com/iancoleman/bip39 and convert the seed into private keys.

You can then obviously import those keys in a wallet which is still supported. (Electrum?)

See this thread, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1938149.0

and more specifically HCP's comment which covers the entirety of the process pretty well;
Or you have to manually or otherwise extract the private keys from your MultiBit HD wallet/seed...

Automated (but technical) method requiring use of python scripts: https://github.com/HardCorePawn/multibit_recovery

Manual method:
- Create offline version of https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/
- Put in your MultiBit HD seed
- Set Derivation Path -> BIP32
- Set Client = "MultiBit HD"
- Copy all the address/private keys (click show more until you are sure you have more than all the addresses you ever used)
- Set Client = "Custom" -> Set Derivation Path = m/0'/1
- Copy all the change addresses/private keys (click show more until you are sure you have more than all the addresses you ever used)



Once you have all your private keys:
- In Electrum -> New/Restore -> Standard Wallet -> Create a new seed
- Once wallet is created, "Wallet -> Private Keys -> Sweep"
- Paste in all the private keys you got from automated or manual method

You should now have all your coins in an Electrum HD Wallet.

So you send BTC from MultiBit wallet to blockchain wallet, that blockchain wallet is not your wallet since you write : "i sent them to somebody and he has proved he never received ". Is this blockchain wallet your wallet or wallet of some other person? If this wallet belongs to you, to log in you need ID and password, if this is not case I do not see any reason for trying get back that coins.

You also say that you use Multibit wallet, is it MultiBit Classic ( no seed ), or maybe MultiBit HD ( with seed )? HD version of wallet is first time released in June 2015 ( version 0.1 ), so it is very possible that you are using Classic version.

In Classic version you only have option to export private keys ( there is no seed ), so if you have original wallet file you can try to get your private keys - in case you think that somehow you still have that BTC in your possession. If you get private keys it is easy to import them to any wallet.
