H.E.

He stated that everybody is innocent until proven guilty; therefore any newspaper or media organization publishing such allegations should submit the evidence to the IOC Ethics Commission immediately for consideration.

The ANOC President believes there is no scope for such kind of activities within the Olympic Movement and insisted he was confident that the IOC would deal with this effectively.
