Court rejects Mamdouh Abbas bid to reclaim Zamalek presidency, restores club membership
Cairo’s Administrative Court Sunday has rejected former Zamalek chairman Mamdouh Abbas’ appeal against the decision to dissolve the club’s board presided by him.
The ruling came after the Egyptian billionaire filed a suit against the minister of sports, Giza governor and the head of the national sports council, in an attempt to regain the presidency of the Whites.
The sports minister October 2013 decision led to Abbas’ dismissal from the club’s presidency and an interim board headed by Kamal Darwish succeeded him.
The court, however, has revoked the decision of the current Zamalek president, Mortada Mansour, to drop Abbas’ club membership.
Abbas mentioned in his appeal that he held the Zamalek presidency for several years, either through elections or by appointment from the sports ministry, which is an indication of his competence. However, he said he was subjected to harassment from the current president of the club, soon after he took responsibility in August 2014, as he terminated his club membership and removed his image from the list of the club’s presidents.
