IOC Excludes Ivan Slavkov
During the afternoon Session, the Session decided to exclude Mr Ivan Slavkov from the IOC. Mr Slavkov was voted out by 84 votes to 12. This meant that the motion to exclude Mr Slavkov received the two-thirds majority that was necessary to exclude him from the movement.
In answer to a question about the expulsion of Ivan Slavkov from the IOC, the President reiterated his zero tolerance policy on corruption and that while it was painful to expel a colleague, the organisation was more important than the individual. Rogge concluded by saying that he hoped that it would be the last time that this situation would arise.
