2023-03-20T12:56:42.767Z


RMC Sport announces that several executives of the French Tennis Federation filed a complaint at the end of last week for embezzlement of public property within the federal body of French tennis.


This information was confirmed to

RMC Sport

by the National Financial Prosecutor's Office.

And the complaint, which has not been disclosed, is currently under investigation.

A few weeks ago

Mediapart

 and

RMC Sport

 had already collected anonymous testimonials describing a

"toxic

" atmosphere and a "

permanent malaise

" within the French tennis body, an employee believing to be "

the target of the day, the one who 'we must shoot

'.

Common point of the two surveys: the worrying number of departures within the FFT.

RMC Sports

thus counting 130 departures (112 for Mediapart) out of more than 400 employees since the arrival at the presidency of Gilles Moretton two years ago for certain employees.

In a letter sent this Tuesday to the members of the Superior Council of Tennis, made up of thirty-two members elected by the General Assembly of the Federation, the strong man of the FFT had brought a formal denial: "These attacks were relayed

by several media, accusing me in somewhat extreme terms - "social tsunami", "republic of terror"... - of acting with brutality, in contempt of labor law and social dialogue, and of practicing clientelism at the opposite of the values ​​we advocate.

I strongly deny these accusations.

These reflect a profound ignorance not only of the facts, but also of the way in which the FFT works, and a desire to harm our Federation.
