Presidents of sports federations suspected of false testimony in Parliament

These reports come from elected officials who sat on the National Assembly's commission of inquiry, which conducted for several months a series of hearings on the failings of sports federations and their responses to sexist and sexual violence, on the fight against racism or their financial management.

These investigations, opened separately for each report, are carried out by the press and protection of public liberties section of the public prosecutor's office. Six reports, received at the Paris prosecutor's office on December 26, refer to "false testimony under oath", the public prosecutor said on January 4, confirming information from the daily Le Monde.

Sabrina Sebaihi, environmental rapporteur of the parliamentary committee, also indicated that she had issued a seventh report targeting Nadir Allouache, president of the French Federation of kickboxing, muay thai and associated disciplines (FFKMDA). She must present the report of the commission of inquiry on January 23. Gilles Moretton, president of the French Tennis Federation (FFT), is particularly targeted for several of his statements regarding financial elements.

According to Le Monde, he is accused, among other things, of having affirmed that the “subject” of suspicions of corruption and misappropriation of public property weighing on him and in connection with the ticketing of Roland-Garros was “closed” while a preliminary investigation was opened on this subject in July 2023 by the National Financial Prosecutor's Office (PNF). Five other leaders are suspected by the deputies of “not having denounced acts of sexual and sexist violence of which (they) may have been aware,” according to the newspaper.

They are Serge Lecomte, president of the French Equestrian Federation (FFE), Gwenaëlle Noury, president of the French Ice Sports Federation (FFSG), Jean-Luc Rougé, former boss of the French Judo Federation and associated disciplines (FFJDA) and current secretary general of the International Judo Federation, Jean Lapeyre, legal director of the French Football Federation (FFF) and Fabien Canu, director general of the National Institute of Sport, Expertise and of performance (Insep).
