      Mr Adham Sharara caught out by the ITTF

      Can anyone elaborate on what exactly happened here: https://www.ittf.com/2019/03/15/ittf...adham-sharara/ I see many posts about Sharara not being good guy but this just proves it.

      This is where everyone says 'I told you so'.


      It enrages me that Sharara got away with this sort of thing for so long, and when eg Stefano Bosi tried to expose it when running for the ITTF Presidency in c. 2013 there was a concerted effort from the Sharara camp to mute him.

      Not allegations: "The suspension, which commences immediately, follows ITTF proceedings that found Mr Sharara had breached his fiduciary duties during his terms of office."

      Why no further details from ITTF I wonder? Perhaps sensitive information but you would think with him not even defending himself and it being an international body there should be some transparency. Was it cronyism? Or embezzlement etc?

      Allegation is still the correct term unless it is proven in court. I do believe the charges are true though.

      The ITTF statement does not mention any further proceedings nor penalties/fines imposed on Sharara. If he engaged in financial shenanigans and the punishment is only a limited suspension from ITTF, that is a very light response.

      Regardless of the damages to the ITTF claimed in their statement, I wonder if they are just interested to sweep this away as quickly as possible without a public legal battle.

      I hope this goes to court to settle all things and to punish if allegations are proven true.

      A 4 year suspension seems so mickey mouse
      Yes, I agree they should search for criminal and civil court proceeding should any crime be committed and ITTF being defrauded

      They should set a precedent to all staff to follow on the strict and tough measure the organization will take towards illegal activities

      If they just leave it to 4 years suspension, then it is indeed a mickey mouse organisation
      imagine if a player is caught doping, maybe the suspension will be longer than Sharara.
