A statement from GM Rene Latosa

To Whom it may concern

As I understand it, one of your most trusted and personal students, Cemil has resigned from EBMAS. I too believed in trusting students, however not to the point where they would take your trust and
actually talk publically about their issues without talking to you first. He was one of the students who I know you actually raised within EBMAS, promoted and was grooming to be a star instructor. When you said he came back to Turkey and formed his own organization, I was really disappointed. I have always supported you and the organization. I am also independent to where I teach to many other organizations as well, but this action by Cemil, is going too far. You are one of my good friends and this action he did was very disloyal to you and as you feel betrayed, I also feel betrayed.

I will support EBMAS and not any organization that is newly formed, nor teach individuals in that organization.

Grandmaster Rene Latosa
