Mortada Mansour, President of Zamalek Club, threatened Hisham Hatab, President of the Olympic Committee, Hassan Mustafa, President of the International Handball Federation, and Mahmoud al-Khatib, President of Al-Ahly Club, after complaints submitted by the last duo to the Egyptian Olympic Committee.
Mortada Mansour said on Zamalek TV early today, Tuesday: “Hisham Hatab, Hassan Mustafa, and Mahmoud Al-Khatib warned against the wrath of millions,” You will deal with bullying. You will see what you have seen in your life.
Murtada continued his attack on Hatab: “Your generation will not leave me, and when I come, I will not go alone. I am the president of the Zamalek club, which has been seen by millions.
And he added, “Hisham Hatab wants to summon the international authorities against Zamalek, and if it happens, then you should bear the anger of Zamalek.”
He continued, “What punishment will you expect on Mortada will not be well received, I will not resort to a foreigner to take my right. I have needs. If I say it, it will happen a lot.”
The president of Zamalek ended his speech by directing to the president of the International Hand Federation, “I will spend a week on you, Hassan Mustafa, and I will not lose you.”
Last Thursday, the Clubs and Values Committee of the Olympic Committee issued a decision to refer Mortada Mansour, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Zamalek, for investigation, based on his violation of some articles in the code of conduct.
Yasser Idris, a spokesman for the Egyptian Olympic Committee, said that the committee had received more than 10 complaints from various parties against Murtaza Mansour, indicating that the investigation with him is legal.
In its statement, the committee clarified that the specialized committees of the Egyptian Olympic Committee monitor and follow up any exit or transgressions that violate the principles of the Olympic Charter and the correct sporting ethics, in preparation for referring them to international sports bodies to take their affairs.
The 10 complaints filed against Mortada Mansour came: 4 from the Football Association, two from Al-Ahly Club, and one from each of Hani Al-Attal, Abdullah George and Mamdouh Abbas.
