QuelLE Surprise: Christian Bimes is being investigated :)

Head of French tennis arrested for alleged abuse of office

Paris (ANTARA News) - The head of the French Tennis Federation is under official investigation for alleged abuse of his office by the French justice authorities it was reported by Saturday`s edition of L`Equipe.

Christian Bimes, 59-years-old and head of the FFT since 1993, was held by police for two days earlier this week and subsequently released but is still under investigation.

Suspicions were first raised in December 2004 when five employees of the FFT brought a complaint against Bimes for abusing his position.

They chiefly accused him of using official cars for personal use, not paying back personal expenses, claiming for unjustified personal expenses (such as plane tickets, using the telephone for personal use and buying groceries) and that his wife had continued to work, after they had got married, for the company that supplied the hostesses for for the French Open, AFP reported.





Buying groceries?? He's my new hero.

Get rid of him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Here's the link to the original article in l'Equipe.

Of course, as expected, Bîmes claims he's innocent and all this is linked to the upcoming election at the head of the FFT.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Not surprising. I can't wait for the day he will be fired.

I see that the only people who "like" him are the brown nosers of the FFT.
I had a friend who worked at the FFT for an internship. She told me that the same week people had been fired "for economical reasons", Bîmes had a brand new expensive car.
