Parliament Sports: We gave Ahmed Mujahid a deadline to respond with documents


Mahmoud Hussein, head of the Youth and Sports Committee in the House of Representatives, announced that Ahmed Mujahid, head of the tripartite committee that runs the Football Association, was given a deadline to respond to the briefing requests.

Hussein said, in telephone statements to the “On My Responsibility” program on “Echo Al-Balad” channel, today, Monday: “12 requests were discussed today out of 27 requests submitted by MPs.”

He added, “We gave Ahmed Mujahid a deadline to complete the responses with documents regarding the violations of the Football Association.”

He continued: “This is not a personal dispute, but for the public interest. Football is part of the Egyptian national security and there is no lurking. The hall was full of representatives because football is important to the Egyptians.”

He stressed: “The reports of the Central Auditing Organization revealed the existence of financial irregularities in the Football Association, and I expect that the violations of wasting public money for an amount of 200 million pounds will be exceeded.”

He explained: “Ahmed Mujahid was not honest about the taxes due and paying them to the state. We have a document from about a month ago stating that the Football Association did not pay taxes, and the debt amounted to 51 million pounds.”

He continued, “We asked why Captain Mahmoud Saad was dismissed and Nilo Vingada was appointed. What is his strategy? He did not develop anything in Egyptian football.”

Mahmoud Hussein concluded: “Any violations proven against the Football Association will be referred to the regulatory authorities and the Public Prosecution. If a player does not pay his registration fees with the Football Association, he will be suspended, so what about the Football Association itself?”
