Sopot ATP owner to be arrested

Surprisingly, this has nothing to do with fixing matches, but it's just another step in a fight with political opponents by current power party. I am just upset with the way they fight against people who sponsor tennis in Poland - sponsors of WTA Warsaw were also arrested or smth, they were also digging big time in Pekao (national bank) sponsor of Szczecin challenger and KGHM (national cupric company) sponsor of Wrocław challenger.

Wtf.

Re: Sopot ATP owner to be arrested.

Re: Sopot ATP owner to be arrested.

Why wtf? it is still known procedure that such thing happen in our country, not enough control power of indenpendent associations.

Being a mental doesn't make you a criminalist. Giertych isn't the case, so I must say this despite not being his fan definitely.

Lepper is a phenomene, he should have been arrested so long ago and so many times, though not for the recent actions, that seem too much of a political provocation against him, but for disturbing the country's pace years ago with road blocades.

Kaczmarek - we don't know yet what has happened there and calling someone a criminal only because of Minister of Justice did it, makes kinda no sense, especially if the spoken minister is hugely mental case himself. This with the tape recording of everyone from own structures and opposition, same as bugs on the phone (things that Lepper and Kaczmarek talk lately about) actually ARE true, just for a plain example, my mom works at public prosecuting, she called me today to tell me what had happened, and we only heard the "hrrr hrrr... disconnect". Anytime during the exam session (I'm a law student) I have bug on my mobile (big echo and hrr hrr) which hasn't really changed from the times when my parents were studying law and calling their parents, in the times of communism. Same methods.

Of course I don't even know what Krauze (the Sopot guy) did, actually this thread was meant to be sarcastic that everyone involved in tennis is caught. I don't say if they're criminal or not, just awful coincidences. Of course Lew Rywin, arrested few yeas ago, was the boss of Polish Tennis Association

Re: Sopot ATP owner to be arrested.

terrible? This guy is like a typical tycoon like those from Russia or Ukraine, so I'm not really surprised. They want to arrest him - who knows, maybe they have more than a shred of evidence that Richard Krauze (Sopot ATP owner). But saying that it's a political fight... great, now we'll hear more "shocking" news about Poland, where actually nothing is worse with the police and secret service than it was for the last 18 years

Glad to hear someone is asking questions instead of talking about another Haider or something Lepper was sentenced to some years in prison but in suspension
Giertych isn't oficially a criminal, although there are some accusation concerning a particular bank. It's about some illegal privatisation, dunno exactly
Kaczmarek is accused, but wasn't sentenced (yet?)

Re: Sopot ATP owner to be arrested.

well, don't feel too bad about that. when it comes to tennis, we got our share as well. steffi graf's dad was sentenced to a couple of years for tax evasion, becker just managed to get out of quite a hassle for the same thing (taxes) etc...

and that's just tennis-wise talking...

Re: Sopot ATP owner to be arrested.

Poland is the most suspicious country for tennis, lots of backhanders and illegal things are always happening in these Polish tournaments.

Re: Sopot ATP owner to be arrested

the whole tour would've collapsed without Sopot. surprised this crisis received so little coverage. people obviously weren't aware of the bigger issues at stake.
