During a two-day event jointly organised by the IOC and INTERPOL, 30 representatives of 26 Olympic IFs took part in training sessions on how to effectively collect and establish facts in relation to reports or suspicions of competition manipulation within sports organisations.
The two-day event, which took place from 13 to 14 June in Lausanne, Switzerland, addressed the need for an effective, coordinated response from the sports world to the threat of match-fixing and related corruption. This week’s training was a good opportunity to introduce the participants to the INTERPOL-IOC Handbook on Conducting Fact-Finding Inquiries into Breaches of Sports Integrity.
The Handbook will be an important reference document for experts in NOCs and IFs as it will help to make complex, challenging inquiries more manageable, transparent and accountable. Read the complete press release here.
