Friday, 09 August 2013 14:47
Stefano Bosi has announced he is to resign as president of the European Table Tennis Union (ETTU) citing a ‘very difficult atmosphere inside ETTU’ as the reason for his decision.
Sharara regained the role but Bosi accused him of corruption and mismanagement of ITTF funds – accusations that led Sharara to threaten Bosi with a lawsuit.
On his resignation, capsule Bosi said: “It was a hard decision for me as I spent part of my life at the European Table Tennis Union’s service, but I realized time has come.
“In the last few months the situation within ETTU was not the same I was used to. After ITTF elections last May in Paris, where I was candidate in opposition to Adham Sharara, I perceived a very difficult atmosphere inside ETTU. For the benefit of our Continent and for personal reasons I decided, after having consulted with the most of the Board members, to resign from the position of President."
Bosi steps down with immediate effect.
