Hayatou escapes with IOC reprimand
Friday 09 December 2011
The International Olympic Committee have issued a reprimand and a warning to two members following allegations they were paid kickbacks by the collapsed sports marketing company ISL. Issa Hayatou, a Fifa vice-president and head of African football, was sanctioned with a reprimand. Lamine Diack, the president of the IAAF international athletics federation, was not sanctioned but was given a warning.
The actions were announced by IOC president Jacques Rogge in Lausanne. Rogge confirmed the fact both Diack and Hayatou were not IOC members at time of the alleged ISL payments was a "mitigating" factor. He refused to comment on former Fifa president Joao Havelange resigning as an IOC member last week before the IOC's ethics commission's decision on him.
