c/o Jean Laurent Bourquin

Dear Olympic Officials,

I am Richard Roehm and am a long time civil rights advocate for the deaf people. I am also a big sports and Olympic fan.

I write to you now to demonstrate my full support for William Schyman, the well-known and widely-respected deaf personality. As you may know, last week Mr. Schyman sent to you his letter in which he urged you and your organization to take appropriate action against the Deaflympics leaders.

Moreover, I have just learned from your website that the IOC will be holding its Executive Board meeting this coming October 26 in Lausanne.

Owing to this fact, I do urge your Board to do something with the Deaflympics' organization and its leaders ( especially with Dr. Ammons from the USA ), who were elected to the top positions during the recent 39th CISS/Deaflympics Congress in Australia in a highly-questionably, dishonest, corrupt and fraudulent manner.

If you will have any question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely Yours,

Richard Roehm
A Civil Rights Advocate for the Deaf
