LAUSANNE (SUI), FIG Office, June 19, 2013: Following on from information received by the Secretariat of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) and in accordance with Art.19.3 of the FIG Statutes, the FIG has launched disciplinary proceedings relating to the staging of a judges' course.
The case file has been passed to a panel comprising two lawyers, Michelle Duncan (NZL) - who has been appointed President of the panel - and Andreas Zagklis (GRE), together with Paul Engelmann (SUI), an elected member of the FIG Disciplinary Commission.
In the first instance, the panel will examine the documents that have been placed in its possession, as well as the report prepared by the President of the Men's Technical Committee, Mr Steve Butcher (USA). Once this initial stage has been completed, the panel will then proceed to interview the implicated parties.
In accordance with the current rules, the identities of the individuals concerned in this case will not be divulged until the panel has finalised its conclusions.
