German Open Trials: Buchlev’s reply

Posted on 10 April 2014

Nedju Buchlev ( Nico Bausback )Further to the discussion started by Nedju Buchlev on Roy Welland representing Germany at the upcoming European Bridge Championships, hereunder is Mr. Buchlev’s final reaction.

Dear Sirs,

I have some good news for you of which the best one probably is:
this is my last mail to you as I have accomplish my mission to make the case Welland public.

I have informed the relevant NBOs and the case has been/still is documented on and Neapolitan Club. On both websites Mr. Aubry and Ms. Auken made statements, the player in charge Mr. Welland did not.

 The statement of Mr. Aubry was extremely valuable as it confirmed what has never been disputed, the EBL gave approval and yes, in doing so they really used their credential committee (a big hand for Mr. Aubry).

 The statement of Ms. Auken revealed a lot about her and nothing about me, but for the first time in the whole controversy some substance has been made: they seem to have a Meldebescheinigung/certificate of residence, the permit of residence has not been mentioned by her, you can draw your own conclusions.

 In every country of the world residents are paying taxes to the state and believe me, Germany is no exception.Between Germany and the US there is a double-tax agreement/treaty effective in order to prevent double-taxation.This treaty clearly rules that residents of both countries pay their taxes at their place of residence.

It would be nice to know if Mr. Welland, as german resident, has a tax-no. here and pays his taxes in Germany. Personally I seriously doubt this, as taxes are way higher in Germany than in the US.

If Mr. Welland is paying his taxes with the IRS in the US there is no way he can claim german residency.
Mr. Welland won the European Open Pairs in Ostend, 2013 under an American flag.Mr. Welland runs in all of the US-nationals, including the recent one in Dallas, Texas 2014 under the residency of New York city.So you don`t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on here.

 I am out, but I can only encourage those of you, who also think the matter is a no-go, to prevent it.

To those people of you I am wishing: Good night and good luck!

With best regards

Nedju Buchlev
