Full CGF response published
Monday, 11 April 2011
Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) President, Michael Fennell, has issued a full response to statements made in the Fifth and Sixth Reports of the Shunglu High Level Committee review into the Delhi Commonwealth Games 2010.
The CGF issued a media release on April 5 refuting inaccurate and unsubstantiated statements in the reports.
Mr Fennell said it was now important to address the matter fully as the reports lacked context and fairness.
"The CGF strongly refutes any implied allegations in the reports of wrongdoing on the part of the CGF or its officers," Mr Fennell said.
"The CGF has acted, and continues to act, with the utmost integrity, objectivity and accountability in everything it has done in connection with the Delhi Commonwealth Games.
"Any suggestions of impropriety are unfounded and damaging to the CGF and the individuals against whom they have been directed.
"I have forwarded our detailed response to the office of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet Secretary through the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sport, so they are fully aware of our position and the failings of the Shunglu Committee," Mr Fennell said.
