It is official that Comitis is now Ajax's honorary chairman

AJAX Cape Town has confirmed that they have awarded John Comitis as the the club’s Honorary Chairman. The announcement was inititially made some 12 months ago by the previous CEO of Ajax Amsterdam, Mr Rik van den Boog. Certain procedural challenges followed and the award has now been bestowed upon Mr Comitis which decided on at the shareholders meeting. The award honours Mr Comitis for the commitment he has shown the club and professional football over the years since the club was formed. In addition, an independent report commissioned by Ajax CT has found that Ajax CT has no cause of action against Mr Comitis to recover a commission of R3,5 million paid to him by the PSL for sponsorship deals. The report exonerates Mr Comitis, stating that he did not exceed his powers as a director of Ajax CT in accepting the commission, nor did he exceed those powers for an improper or collateral purpose in accepting the commission. The shareholders of Ajax CT can now confirm that they have passed a resolution at the shareholders meeting and it was decided that no legal proceedings will be instituted against Mr Comitis.”
