IOC Executive Board rejects complaint against World Triathlon and its President
The IOC Executive Board has announced their decision of the IOC Ethics Commission regarding the complaint filed by the five Members of the World Triathlon Tribunal against Marisol Casado, President; Antonio F. Arimany, Secretary General and Bernard Saint-Jean, Chair of the Legal & Constitution Committee.
Based on the recommendations of the IOC Ethics Commission, the IOC EB decided to reject the complaint against World Triathlon, which is outside the scope of application of the IOC Ethics Commission and the IOC; and reject the complaint against Mrs Marisol Casado, IOC Member, as no breach of the IOC’s ethical principles has been demonstrated.
It has been demonstrated that the Tribunal has put a complaint without any evidence and with the only purpose to interfere in the elections, due to take place next Sunday 29th of November and that the five Tribunal Members, all lawyers, did not follow the internal rules of World Triathlon regarding where to file their complaint and they only tried to damage the reputation of these three people.
World Triathlon and its President, Secretary General and Chair of the Legal & Constitution Committee are confident that we will have a serene elections and that no other personal interests will perturb the elections.
