As reported in our previous article, Yves Aubry, President of the European Bridge League, spoke about the EBL Investigation Committee work during the NBO’s Officer Seminar, held from January 28 to 31, 2016 in Rome.
In his speech Mr Aubry did not refer to the reports of the Investigating Committee on the cheating scandals but just about the procedure and the duty of the EBL President to have a fair disciplinary process.
He said that: “The President of the EBL must stand back from the investigation and disciplinary procedures and I will stick to that. But the President of the EBL is responsible for the establishment of the investigation procedure, for the transfer of any cases to the disciplinary commission, for the respect of the law both on the EBL side or the accused players. The President of the EBL must do everything to ensure that everything is organised in the best possible way in content, in format, in reasonable time, with adequate communication and with the help of professional jurists.”
Then Mr Aubry closed his speech by all the other problems linked, who will come later like: other possible cases, actions from NBO’s, or ACBL for the same players, reciprocity, ranking in Opatija, and of course prevention.
Important news is expected next week. If the President will decide to transmit one or more cases to the Disciplinary Commission, first the involved players will be informed and then a statement will be published on the EBL site.
