http://www.ittf.com/2019/03/15/ittf-executive-committee-statement-former-president-mr-adham-sharara/" rel="nofollow - https://www.ittf.com/2019/03/15/ittf-executive-committee-statement-former-president-mr-adham-sharara/

The International Table Tennis Federation [ITTF] Executive Committee today confirms the suspension of Mr Adham Sharara, former President and current Honorary President of the ITTF, from all activity within or in connection with the ITTF for four years.

The suspension, which commences immediately, follows ITTF proceedings that found Mr Sharara had breached his fiduciary duties during his terms of office.

The decision to suspend Mr Sharara for inappropriate misconduct was reached following a comprehensive investigation and the Executive Committee conducted the process in full accordance with ITTF’s regulations.

The Executive Committee reached this decision with a heavy heart after reviewing evidence reports, financial records and recommendations, including legal advice prepared by external legal counsel Withers KhattarWong and a report by professional services firm BDO. Actions that have led to this decision include:

  • Conflict of interest during the process of ITTF buying-back its commercial and marketing contracts from TMS International;
  • Interference on the bidding process on a major ITTF equipment contract;
  • Inappropriate use of ITTF funds.

The Executive Committee concluded that the ITTF suffered damage as a result of Mr Sharara’s actions. It has therefore taken this difficult decision in order to protect the integrity of the ITTF and the sport of table tennis.

Mr Sharara was informed of charges made against him and was presented with the relevant evidence. He and his legal team rejected various invitations from the Executive Committee to attend hearings to answer their questions, put forward his defence or attempt to resolve the matter in good faith.

The ITTF Executive Committee’s decision to suspend Mr Sharara has been declared final and it considers the matter concluded.

Terms of Mr Sharara’s suspension as ratified by the ITTF Executive Committee:

During the period of his suspension, Mr Sharara may not participate in any capacity in a competition or activity organised by either the ITTF or any ITTF Member Federation. The suspension also applies to any international/national competition or event authorised by the ITTF or any elite or national-level sporting activity funded by the ITTF.

I was thinking that too.  Adham might be thinking "Ok, I'm suspended for four years.  So what, see ya." For financial malfeasance at this level, I would expect prison time.  Maybe this is just the first step.  If it does go to a lawsuit, it would be interesting to know a few basic questions like:

1.  Where would it be? Maybe Canada as that is where he lives?
2.  At this level, there would be co-conspirators.  Some of them might be turned into witness(es) for the plaintiff with a lighter sentence of course.
3.  It is interesting that Adham did not want to attend the ITTF proceedings.  Maybe he will say it is a witch-hunt plain and simple.  I'm sure there are lots of emotions from both sides right now.  But I am genuinely awaiting Adham's statement in response to the allegations.

<just a theory>
He has already threatened to increase the size of their balls hitting under the belt and they are going to let him get away: he knows plenty of wrong things people in charge now have done in the past and he can retaliate so the 4-year ban is just for ITTF to save face. 
</just a theory>

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

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.

I am pretty sure that being suspended means he is not going to enjoy any of those amenities for the next four years.  Maybe that will be the least of his problems.

HOW MUCH SALARY IS DUE FOR A MAN OCCUPYING PRESIDENTIAL POSITION WITHIN ITTF ?

Just for curiosity, took up some explorations on Internet all around,
Here is my happy find, hidden in murky corner of the worldweb.   The very cherished secrets by ITTF Chief Person.

Quote It should be noted that within the expenses of 306,767 USD, incurred in relation to the ITTF President,    94,233 USD was paid to Mr. Tomas Weikert as an honorarium (salary statutory) for the services provided.

This has already been deleted off the site once this thread got noticed...when "shit hits the fan" parents and players should ask their "member council" (they are the ones that had a SECRET vote)...WHY?

This is when they (parents and players) should start fresh and delete all positions and not have them re-enlisted! Start fresh with new policies and  be a part of the process....do NOT be left out ever again!

One small and a little bit off topic remark: so ittf gets 1,2 mln USD for equipment approval fees? Seems somewhat on the big side... What are they doing there? counting atoms?

He has broken his terms and conditions  laid out by the ITTF Committee. The member council and the Board of Directors before changes would have had  prior knowledge to his suspension YET they voted him in, why?

This blatant disregard should not go unnoticed and Canada should be removed from the ittf membership till they correct their error.

I realize many MYTT member have their reasons . . . probably good reasons . . . for not liking Adham Sharara, but have to say . . . 

He was always kind and supportive with me. In the past, I shared emails, thoughts about the game, and laughs with him. A few years back, myself and Hookshot were his personal guests at the annual VW event in Guangzhou China. He was a wonderful host, and we had an unforgettable time. 

 It seems he may have mades some mistakes . . . screwed up . . . but there is a good side to him, I can attest to that. I sincerely hope and pray all is resolved, lessons are learned, and all parties come away better off.

Mr. Sharara disgraced, he did now expressed his own perceptions of the sore issue,
interviewed remotedly by   insidethegames   reporter/
Quote
TMS was a company Sharara created in 2001 to take care of all of the ITTF's commercial needs.
    After insidethegames contacted Sharara for a response, the Canadian claimed the situation was due to his deteriorating relationship with Weikert.
He alleged that the ITTF wanted to stop the possibility of him from standing for its top job again after he became President of Table Tennis Canada (TTCAN) last year.
    Sharara also alleged he had been subject to "vicious attacks" after declaring for Saive and that he had always provided responses and explanations through legal letters from his lawyer.
    He claimed that at last year's World Team Table Championships in Sweden he was told that the ITTF "wanted peace" and "would honour his legacy" but written confirmation of this never arrived.
    Sharara said he was subject to allegations again when nominated for TTCAN President.

"The accusations and allegations against me are all false," Sharara told insidethegames.
The reality is that Mr Weikert and some others in the ITTF interpret my election as President of TTCAN as a step towards the Presidency of the ITTF."

"This is why the suspension is for four years in order not to permit me to run for President of the ITTF at the next elections.
"On 13 March 2019, I offered the possibility of a meeting in London in the first week of April 2019 or at the World Championships in Budapest also in April.
"On 14 March I received a response from Mr Weikert agreeing with a possibility of a meeting in London, but again with pre-conditions of guilt.
"I responded on 14 March stating that I would be happy to meet in London, but without any preconditions.
"Without any further notice the suspension was issued today.

"This morning I received hundreds of e-mails of support and of 'amazement' from the international table tennis community and even from some members of the ITTF Executive Committee.

"This is very heart-warming.
According to the ITTF constitution, only the AGM has the right to remove the Honorary President of the ITTF. "

"I am sure that this suspension will be questioned from within the ITTF membership.

"This is a very sad day for international table tennis, instead of wasting time attacking me with frivolous accusations, the current leader of the ITTF should focus on the future and build on the legacy that I have provided through my 25 years in the ITTF, including 15 years as President.

"Of course I will be taking legal action to fight this unjust and unfair suspension and I am confident that I will be successful."

When table tennis was an art and player was an artist of spin. I mean the era of 38mm celluloid ball.
Back to that days, an old man could beat a powerful player by his exp, but not now.
Nowadays, Table Tennis is more like Tennis when players could rely on fitness and tenergy.

Misread this as a reference to hardbat not the 38mm ball era. In the 38 era it was still fair to say that being in top athletic form is highly advantageous.

But what I find odd is that at the advanced amateur levels, table tennis really isn't dominated by physical prowess.  So I disagree with the original premise that the game has changed in this way.  Good hand eye coordination and technique can totally obliterate physical prowess.

And even at higher levels, 14 year old children can dominate physically superior adults.  It is only at the very highest levels that the physical aspects of the game become necessary.

Back to D38mm ball, it would take 5 years to learn all technics. Now, a kid needs 1 year to master all. TT now is much easier to play than the 38mm ball era.
Somehow, Mr. Sharara has succeeded to bring TT to be more popular, and thanks for Tenergy with BIOS sponge.

But what I find odd is that at the advanced amateur levels, table tennis really isn't dominated by physical prowess.  So I disagree with the original premise that the game has changed in this way.  Good hand eye coordination and technique can totally obliterate physical prowess.

And even at higher levels, 14 year old children can dominate physically superior adults.  It is only at the very highest levels that the physical aspects of the game become necessary.

Show me a single kid that has managed to "master all" in one year.  I see no such thing happening.

The youngest U.S. National Champion is still Patty Martinez ... who did that using the 38mm ball and a hardbat.

With a right setup of racket, a normal kid needs 3 coaching sessions a week (3x2=6 hours) during a year then he/she could learn all TT modern techniques from attack to defense. Yet he/she couldn't be a champion in adult tournament, he/she could play TT in a decent level that a kid in 1990 must learn in 5 years.

I am that kid in 1990. It took me 3-5 years to receive service properly or confident enough to attack the service due to the fact that I was in "seeded" prov junior team. I couldn't do counter loop 5-7 times or finished to win the counter loop successfully. however my students could do counter loop easily non stop before 12 months practice.

I mean in the social aspect of TT. It is easier to join the game without spending much time in practice.

Ermm

What would you do with it? Maybe after you've printed it off and had your "sadistic and perverted way" with it, it might be the missing link in the search for a blade that goes balls-deep on the forehand like a Viscaria but is nicely dampened on the backhand for your LPs? 

Try it, stick some paper, ideally with a picture of a disgraced former president of a world wide sports organising body and a hobby table tennis player/ forum admin onto your carbon blade on the BH side, between the LP and the blade, and you will no doubt experience something.

Funny that a guy who just joined a couple days ago would know about that picture and the posting style of Berndt Mann (who has not been around for quite a long time).  Suggests to me that this is a former member with a new name.  Usually that is the result of being banned previously.  Add to it the posting style and it becomes a

So Thuro Wexston should be aware that he is operating here with a nanoscale leash.

OH REALLY ? First of all did you see anywhere in my post to BAAL where I ask for his ID ?

All I asked was that administrators post with their real names just like I have posted with my name. 
When yourself, BAAL & other admins post pictures of their driver licenses, passport pages, social security number or (equivalent) & at least 4 credit card numbers with expiration dates & security codes , I would be more than happy to do the same.  

If BAAL wants to threaten me with impunity, the least he can do is not hide behind a fake name. I expect higher code of ethics from admins.

Dear Mr Kevin Fang, you have achieved your purpose of getting me banned by provoking me twisting my words and I understand after platinum you have no place but to go unless an admin. But is it necessary to start kissing other admin's arses so quickly. You are still young & you will make admin soon & have plenty of opportunities to harass me & ban me in the future but to shamelessly start kissing up as soon as became a platinum member .....that is so lame.

I expect to to be banned pretty soon(Of course so that  BAAl & other admins do not  have to give their real names) . So I will post replies to BAAL and others on various issues in RSTT forum .
Good Bye

Umm that is quite interesting that how platinum members jump in here always mislead & confuse other members by ONLY talking about the real identity of the new poster while my question in the first place was about admins hiding behind fake names and refusing to reveal their real names,  though I post with my real name. So if you question my real name, how do I know about real identity of all other posters who post with alleged real names ?  Let us see ....I have to take the word of the admins who won't even reveal their real names even if fake like yours ........okdokey That clears the whole thing now.

BTW noone is "baiting" you to do anything like Kevin baited me.. All I said was that replies may be posted in RSTT, an unmoderated forum. If any, you are free to hide in a moderated forum and post your replies to my posts in RSTT , just as I am (or anyone else is) free to post replies to your reply in RSTT.  I at least give you all the courtesy of my responding to you in another forum many posters here are not aware of. and not hiding. 
If BAAL & other admins want to hide their names & want to play the banning game in a moderated forum, I at least have the right to defend myself in an unmoderated free open forum from which most of the older posters ran away afraid of facing the truth.

You might want to re-read some of the posts and try painting with a less broad brush. 

From where I sit, Baal seems to be trolling himself.  I'd have thought that PMing Thuro would have been the preferred way to deal with his suspicions.  Putting the Thuro on notice publicly when there is no clear evidence that he's violated any board policy seems like poor way to handle things.

Given that the board owner knows the names of admins there is a fairly direct path to accountability.  And since admins must sometimes enforce rules and do other legit things that can upset folks, it makes a lot of sense to me that their identities might be kept private.  I don't think users/members have to reveal their names to the community do they?  I think that they only have to reveal that to the board owners/operators.

I found baal's style a bit harsh at first and it took me time to understand that peace comes at a price, especially when mods can't afford to roam the forum all day long. His way to spot trolls early is appropriate and shows people that somebody is watching, it personally makes me feel safe; I do understand that some people find him too severe but frankly, he is not and leaves a lot of leeway.

Well, I re-read the board policies before making my comment and Baal seems more out of line than Thuro was.  And what happened after Baal's post is typical of what happens when trolls post. 

I'm making no judgement on Baal as a person in general or in general as a moderator.  I just think what he did in this case created more trouble than we had to begin with.  Maybe it was inevitable that we were going to have trouble or maybe not.  I dunno.  But maybe if he had just sent a PM, just asked if he was a previous member,  or just waited until some rule was broken. we wouldn't be having this little tempest in this little teapot.

Safe from what . From me coming to your house and stalking you ?
Don't flatter yourself. If you are so sexy why are you yet another anonymous poster on this forum without giving your name and posting your picture ?

No kidding.  When you do not have to post using your real name, you can get away with murder

more changes coming at Table Tennis Canada but Adham under his ITTF suspension is still rooted as president turning his nose up at ITTF regulations (what does that say about him and those around him...that's the question?)


Will he load the board now with his cronies? What is the future of Canadian Table Tennis with the ITTF now?

i see ramblings about PanAm selections with the Americans...you should see what's happening at Table Tennis Canada...this is what their staff looks like right now...they haven't even selected a team as yet..be thankful you guys have a team - they have no CEO, no HPD, No Marketing but at least they have a rating system thank god for that Clap oh and the Americans get to practice with the Koreans and Chinese but the Canadians get to watch it maybe on YoutubeLOL

but best of all the Canadians have an ITTF suspended member as their president that basically means...Canada will be SHUNNED as per the terms and conditions attached to that suspension.
