Egypt Olympic committee wants legal action against club head

CAIRO (AP) – Egypt’s Olympic Committee is appealing to the country’s parliament to lift the immunity of the chairman of a Cairo club it sanctioned for his misconduct.

Murtada Mansour of Zamalek FC was sanctioned Saturday by both the Confederation of African Football and the Egyptian Olympic Committee for insulting the head of CAF and for his unethical conduct. Mansour reacted defiantly, threatening to burn down CAF’s Cairo headquarters.

The state-owned daily al-Ahram published Sunday the Olympic committee’s full statement on Mansour. It says The Egyptian has abused his parliamentary immunity, leaving victims of his repeated slander without recourse to justice. It says his conduct broke the law and violated the constitution.

Numerous complaints against Mansour have been lodged with Egypt’s chief prosecutor, but parliament has resisted requests to lift his immunity.
