BODYBUILDERS WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT IFBB.
There is a big mess in the International Bodybuilding today. We see lots of International Federations but no one works for the sake of our sport to be recognized. Aiming for official support no one of those federations is in dialogue with other International Organizations, Governmental and Social Institutions of various countries.
USA bodybuilding lives it’s own isolated life and does not care of anything else. Manipulating between official and illegal sport the European bodybuilding suffers hard times. Australia, Asia and Africa have never played a noticeable role in the Global bodybuilding sport movement.
It seems today that uniting National Organizations from 107 Countries which represent all Continents, only the WFF-WBBF International cares for bodybuilding as official sport and makes real big efforts for the recognition of bodybuilding as sport even on the highest official level possible.
To have a good start on official level any International Federation must be registered by Law. It must have a registered Constitution and work on it’s basis.
Now we will speak of the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) as it was very close to get the positive result until the real truth about the IFBB came to public. All of us learned, that the IFBB is not a sport federation, but a private property of few people and that the sportsmen of different countries have been fooled about this for decades...
We underline again and again: if the IFBB is so much unserious, then all other International Federations suffer still more legal juridical problems.
After 2009 IFBB split, the International Vice President IFBB PAUL CHUA (Singapore) and President National Federation IFBB Austria and Lower IFBB International ALEX BAUER presented for the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation) International Headquarters over 600 IFBB juridical documents and asked to publish them on forum of the International Internet Site www.wff.lt . To study thoroughly so many documents takes a lot of time. We published some of them before, but after a lot of requests from bodybuilders of many countries we have studied them and published once again with our remarks and conclusions. We named the article: “ILLEGAL IFBB JURIDICAL, FINANCIAL, DOPING AND SPORT POLITIC AFFAIRS. DOCUMENTS”. Here below with some comments we will give a short revue of the IFBB documents.
IFBB HAS NEVER BEEN AN INTERNATIONAL SPORT FEDERATION.
According the juridical registration documents the IFBB legal status is of a private commercial company. As per documents presented by the USA Bodybuilding Legend DAN LURIE and Attorney of Law ADAM ATLAS the IFBB was registered in 1969 in Canada and it had three Canadian owners: BEN WEIDER, REIMOND CREPAULT and JAGUELINE ROY. As until 1969 the IFBB had no legal juridical registration, it’s legal official history starts only in 1969.
WHO IS BEHIND IFBB COMMERCIAL COMPANY TODAY.
The letter of ALEX BAUER addressed to the contemporary Owner of the IFBB commercial company Spanish RAFAEL SANTONJA proves, that 2004 - 2007 IFBB declarations for Canada (Quebec) Government were signed by DIANE GIROUX, KIM VU, LUC AUTET. These persons are not known to anybody of the bodybuilding world. Then who really rules the IFBB? Public information shows, that the Ownership of the IFBB Company has been tranfered from Canada to Spain (from BEN WEIDER to RAFAEL SANTONJA), but the IFBB official juridic address remained the same, the Canadian one. A very important IFBB juridical document of resighning of BEN WEIDER and appointing RAFAEL SANTONJA was signed by PAMELA KAGAN. How it could be? Who gave the power for PAMELA KAGAN to do this? IFBB members were angry about the secret nomination of RAFAEL SANTONJA . IFBB members never discussed about this and finally they were facing the fact done. And again this was “a secret action”.
RAFAEL SANTONJA TRIES TO EXPLAIN THE CLUMSY SITUATION.
More and more questions appeared from the IFBB members to RAFAEL SANTONJA, who became the IFBB President in a very hard to explain way. IFBB members asked about the IFBB finances, activities, the difference from IFBB private Company in Canada and the IFBB private Company in Spain and a number of Spanish commercial firms belonging to RAFAEL SANTONJA. They asked why the IFBB International documents were without signatures, why everything was so secret form IFBB members. Then RAFAEL SANTONJA tried to explain the situation to the General Secretary and Lower IFBB International, President IFBB Austria ALEX BAUER. This explanation letter rised even more juridical and financial questions.
IFBB/EFBB ILLEGAL FINANCIAL DEALS. LET US KNOW THE TRUTH.
For decades everything was well in the IFBB. Until the President IFBB Austria ALEX BAUER became one of the IFBB leaders and the IFBB Lower. ALEX BAUER was one of the three subjects who set the new IFBB federation in 2007. Seeing dirty affairs done behind his back, affairs for which he could be punished by Law, ALEX BAUER asked RAFAEL SANTONJA to present him a number of the juridical and financial IFBB/EFBB documents. He underlined, that after 25 years of his service to IFBB federation he finally learned it does not exist. The real is only private IFBB commercial company of BEN WEIDER in Canada. IFBB officials elected at the International Congress have no juridical power as the federation is illegal. Also they are null in the private commercial company of IFBB. The IFBB federation that is advertised on Internet Site www.ifbb.com – does not exist in real. The real name is another one. IFBB and EFBB being not registered in a proper juridical way means illegal and of no value Contracts, illegal collected money payments and fees, illegal work payments and escaping to pay taxes. IFBB/EFBB finances are in total disorder and chaos and it is impossible to get the truth among lots of legal and illegal accounts which are hidden from the IFBB/EFBB members.
ALEX BAUER was angry with the fact that RAFAEL SANTONJA took 100 000 dollars that were given for the federation. The money did not reach IFBB and disappeared… the 2002 IFBB/EFBB International Congress in Minsk (Belarus) decided that the federation’s money can not go to the accounts of RAFAEL SANTONJA’s private commercial companies, but it goes… ALEX BAUER found out that IFBB is not registered and it is not existing in Spain. Then how the IFBB money can be used for the IFBB when there is no IFBB at all???
ALEX BAUER scrutinized the financial and juridical situation and made the schemes how RAFAEL SANTONJA uses to take the money from the IFBB/EFBB accounts to his private commercial companies.
Having no definite answer from RAFAEL SANTONJA ALEX BAUER started informing IFBB members of the situation and the war started. The long working IFBB members, who dared to open their mouths, were forced to leave the IFBB. Finally the IFBB split in 2009.
IFBB REGULARLY VIOLATES WADA RULES. DOPING COURT TRIALS FOR ONE OF THE INTERNATIONAL IFBB LEADERS.
During the last twenty years owners of the IFBB commercial company declare their priorities over other federations due to the IFBB Anti Doping Contract with WADA. It irritates other federations, which know the IFBB real situation to be very different from that in their declarations. That were main reasons, that IOC refused to recognize and support IFBB. It was the reason, that the „World Games“ and „Asia Games“ „deleted“ IFBB from their members.
The documents show that among suspected to manipulate with doping cases is the wife of RAFAEL SANTONJA. There were happenings when at the IFBB contests total National Teams were caught using doping (for example, Russia, Czech). National Bodybuilding Team Egypt is the real World‘s „doping leader“. Though it has constant doping problems, the IFBB always praise this federation. Last case was in Thailand, when 8 of 9 Egypt bodybuilders left the contest for this reason. IFBB neglects Anti Doping rules and WADA Code as often there is no doping control at IFBB competitions, including the highest level events.
IFBB was accused taking 30 doping tests and presenting for WADA only 15; hiding doping control results from IFBB members and International sport society; giving minimal simbolic punnishment for the selected athletes, who have received „live“ disqualification for multiple positive doping results; hiding a number of cases, when IFBB young sportsmen were dead.
It could be a good example to underline the questions discussed through one of the closest co-workers of RAFAEL SANTONJA, a High International IFBB Officer and the National President IFBB Poland PAWEL FILEBORN.
PAWEL FILEBORN was in under long lasting Polish court trial. A number of well known Polish sportsmen accuse PAWEL FILEBORN for 1 000 US dollars selling bodybuilders definite „doping usage“ programmes and for 10 000 US dollars offering the sportsmen, caught positive during the doping tests, the way to escape the punnishments.
FORGET THE CONSTITUTION. STANISLAV PESAT STANDS AGAINST RAFAEL SANTONJA.
Once when the total National Team IFBB Czech Republic was accused using doping and that was accepted as a fact, then due to this reason the President IFBB Czech Republic STANISLAV PESAT was made to leave his post.
Organized in 2000 the IFBB Europeean Federation (EFBB) was very passive and did not work in real. Being one of the EFBB founders and seeing that RAFAEL SANTONJA lost his ability to define interests of both IFBB and EFBB, STANISLAV PESAT dared to candidate for the EFBB President’s position.
When STANISLAV PESAT stood against RAFAEL SANTONJA, the IFBB democracy was forgotten in a minute. The nomination of STANISLAV PESAT was turned down by RAFAEL SANTONJA, who without any discussions left for himself both highest positions in IFBB and EFBB. What democracy and what elections you want in a private commercial company that IFBB is? IFBB acts under the Constitution of the IFBB commercial company, not under the virtual unregistered Constitution that is presented for bodybuilders.
IFBB IS A COMMERCIAL COMPANY, NOT SPORT FEDERATION. OPPONENTS PROVED THIS IN LONDON’S COURT.
IFBB being a corporate commercial enterprise ruins all long lasting image not only of this virtual “federation”, but it makes a deadly strike for all bodybuilding sport in general. What serious organizations, Governmental Institutions, Sport Ministries of various countries can speak with IFBB on serious questions? No one!
When in 2009 the IFBB members learned the truth about the IFBB, all national Federations of the IFBB and all World’s Sport Society was in shock. Then due to inner fighting the IFBB split and many National Federations left it. The IFBB Chairmen did not wanted to speak with the IFBB members and he has chosen the way of IFBB being split.
And even after split IFBB continued fooling the International Sport Society and went on with lies. For example IFBB presented for public 30 participating countries at the IFBB Asia Championship in India. In real there were only seven. They have given the names of participants when these participants never visited India. Also there was again no doping control at this IFBB International Event and again IFBB Anti Doping rules and WADA Code were violated. The same situation is with the 2011 IFBB World Championship in Estonia. Now there is quite a big national scandal.
NoIFBB members speak and most prefer to keep silence.
In USA IFBB Pro MILOS SARCEV gave the truth information on his personal site. But Asia IFBB federation, uniting 38 countries, is thankful to see the IFBB information in different languages on the International Bodybuilding site www.wff.lt (read forum).
Having more time we will publish the IFBB documents that were sent to the President WFF-WBBF International EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS by a close friend of RAFAEL SANTONJA Vice President IFBB Spain HOSE PARDO HIDALGO and the former BEN WEIDER assistant and also the IFBB Vice President and the Owner of WABBA and a famous bodybuilder SERGE NUBRET.
