There are two groups of people claiming to have governance control of the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf.
The two groups fighting to control ICSD are:
The original board members voted in by Congress; Jack Lamberton, Rebecca Adam, Grigor Grigoryan, Yakup Kihtir and Marijo Lusic.
The breakaway group led by Dimitri Rebrov and Gustavo Perazzolo include Mohammad Pargar, Mohamed Madoun, Iosif Stavrakakis and Pedro Squella.
The breakaway group was formed after Chan resigned as ICSD president and the board’s refusal to promote Perazzolo to President.
Our understanding is that the original board attempted to fire Rebrov from his role as CEO and it appears that in retaliation, the board were blocked from access to ICSD files and their official email addresses.
It has taken some time for the board to regroup with temporary email addresses, a Facebook page and a new website.
Contrary to the assertions by ICSD Chair of Technical Committee, Bogard that the summer games will be held in Caxias do Sol and an Extraordinary Congress is Switzerland, the ICSD board have announced on their website that the games are now in the control of CBDS and with Sports Ministry approval will be hosting the games in Rio de Janerio, using the 2016 Olympic facilities. They are also searching for an alternative venue/version for the Extraordinary Congress.
