FOR failing to account for more than P12 million in funds from the government during the 1992 World Chess Olympiad in Manila, former International Chess Federation chief Florencio Campomanes was handed a 22-month prison sentence by the Sandiganbayan.

AS long as Sammy Estimo and Grandmaster Eugene Torre remain at the helm of the National Chess Federation of the Philippines, the future of local chess appears dim, Florencio Campomanes, the former International Chess Federation president said yesterday.
National Chess Federation of the Philippines (NCFP) secretary-general Sammy Estimo said he would file a P30-million damage suit against former International Chess Federation (FIDE) president Florencio Campomanes and three others for a series of articles that maligned his person and destroyed his reputation.
What we need is a sound development program and not merely tournament after tournament, said Campomanes at the PSA forum at the Manila Pavilion hotel. /news/search/search_news.aspx?q=Sammy+Estimo

 The Manila Times Internet Edition SPORTS >Cops nab ball boy who filched  $1,100 from wallet of ‘Campo’
Campomanes, who served the world chess governing body from 1982 to 1995, had to rush to the airport to catch a plane going to Cebu following a tennis game when he noticed only $900 left in his wallet.
In the past, there have been a series of robberies and burglaries within the sports complex, and last July 6, Florencio Campomanes, honorary president of the International Chess Federation, was the latest victim.
Minutes after, Campomanes found his traveling bag was not in the usual place where the ball boy usually put it, near at the doorsteps of the shower room adjacent to the room of the Philippine Lawn Tennis Association office, and he had to ask Terubia to hand the bag over. /national/2003/jul/13/sports/20030713spo5.html

Campomanes: Torre an idol with feet of clay
World Chess Federation Honorary President Florencio Campomanes yesterday denied he is behind the deep division prevailing in Philippine chess, as alleged by Grandmaster Eugene Torre last Sunday. /apr27/spor4.htm

Campomanes' defence - that it was not FIDE's practice to keep receipts or account for funds received from the host government of an Olympiad - was rejected by the Sandiganbayan - but last week the court ruled that because of Campomanes' advanced age (77 next Sunday), a fine would be more appropriate for "humanitarian reasons".
Campomanes then successfully changed horses when Marcos was overthrown by 'people power' in 1986 and enjoyed the support of the new government for his re-election campaign as FIDE President later that year, a campaign where he shrugged off allegations that FIDE delegates had been bribed to vote for the incumbent and won in a landslide.
