On April, 15, 2014 the German Bridge Federation (DBV – Deutscher Bridge Verband) appelaed against the Ruling of the WBF Disciplinary Committee, after the hearing held in Dallas on 21st and 22nd of March.
(Full DBV Appeal letter has been published at “Bridge Magazin”, the official review of DBV).
Additionally, last April in Kassel an Independent Committee of five German top players was set up to check the evidence (videos, hands etc) against Elinescu and Wladow. The German top players are: Christian Schwerdt, Jörg Fritsche, Michael Gromöller, Wolf Stahl, Peter Jokisch.
The conclusions of the Independent Committee are expected to be published soon.
