Haiti - Football : "The Bolivian scandal" the investigation continues
13/09/2010 06:35:45

Haiti - Football :
Let us recall that the prosecutor Victor Hugo Pérez, formally asked the General prosecutor to investigate the complaint filed by Arturo Garcia. The complaint was filed in Santa Cruz (900 km east of La Paz), because the players mentioned are native of this city "There are players of 21 years but ranked 15 and 16 to the detriment of young people who really want to play at their age", said Perez, who denounced the president of the Bolivian Football Federation (FBF), Carlos Chavez of having "negotiated" the age of the players. "We will do a thorough investigation to determine whether collusion or if the parents have changed the age that their son can play in a lower category.

A spokesman for FIFA said that "disputes about the legitimacy [age] of the players at the Games, should be made in writing to the FIFA office in Singapore, five days after the first game and not after. The FIFA disciplinary department has confirmed that so far no complaint had been filed within that time and that no complaint or appeal after the deadline will be considered.

If the position of the Fifa is clear, taking refuge behind its payment, this position does not achieve the unanimity within other associations, thus for the general secretary of the Association of Swimming of Singapore, Oon Jin Gee "If it is proved that there was really intended to cheat on the age you can not close your eyes and stay there "[NdHL - period or no period]"

Although without value in this complaint, of many spectators who attended the finale Bolivia-Haiti (5-0) declared with local newspapers, that for them the age of the players had been falsified with the sight of the physique of the Bolivian players on the ground.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) for its part confirmed that an investigation is opened on these allegations. Vice-President, Ser Miang said that we should not jump to conclusions or speculate on possible sanctions "I think we should first await the outcome of the investigation by the Bolivian Olympic Committee (COB)"

FBF has requested a hearing with the COB and declared "we are prepared to answer questions and provide evidence that all is in order, it suffices to show identity cards and passports of the players involved" declared the FBF.

Evidence that may not be as easy to do if one refers to statements by President Jorge Justiniano of the National Association Football (ANF) which recognized that there was more than 400 cases of players with problems of documents.
