ELECTION OF HOST CITY 2008: DOCUMENT CIRCULATING IS BLATANT FORGERY


Lausanne, 13 June 2001 - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has been informed about the existence of an anonymous document which alleges that the IOC President intervened in the drafting of the report by the IOC Evaluation Commission for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in 2008.

The Evaluation Commission and its Chairman, Mr Hein Verbruggen, confirm that they performed their work in total independence and with no intervention whatsoever from the IOC President, who saw the report at the same time as his IOC Executive Board colleagues on 15 May last.

The document in question is a blatant forgery, as is the content of the allegations it contains.
