Patas na ‘kumpas’ ng POC asam ni Cantada
ASAM ng Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) na magiging patas ang Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) sa magiging hatol nito sa natatangi at official volleyball association ng bansa.
Hangad ni PVF President Edgardo ‘Tito Boy’ Cantada na magiging patas ang desisyon ng POC na nakasalalay kay Rep. Abraham ‘Bambol’ Tolentino.
“Isang sulat lang ni dating POC President Peping Cojuangco ang sumira sa PVF sa International Federation. Walang direktang desisyon ang FIVB hingil rito kung kaya’t ang magiging pahayag ni Cong. Tolentino ang makapagbibigay katuturan sa aming pinaglalaban sa FIVB,” pahayag ni Cantada.
“The Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) has, absolutely, no legal personality with its “provisional membership” in the FIVB.”
“The PVF would like to reiterate that the exclusion and affiliation of membership are decided solely by the General Assembly. Any decision made by the General Assembly could only be revised, altered or revoked by the General Assembly only,” dagdag nito.
“Kindly be reminded, as rendered by the highest international Sporting body, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that the ultimate decision making body of international and national federations is the General Assembly. Neither the President nor the Board of Directors/Administrators could alter, impose conditions or reverse any of its decisions,” punto pa ni Cantada. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
