FIDE Notification on Borislav Ivanov Case (Chess Fairplay)
FIDE is closely following the developments of the story with regards to the Bulgarian chess player Borislav Ivanov.
We are in receipt of several inquiries and proposals in respect of this issue, with ACP proposing some serious steps. (Y. Garrett letter).
FIDE is aware of the damage caused by this unfortunate incident and is seriously considering various proposals.
However, FIDE has not received any official communication from the Bulgarian Federation in this respect and this is the second incident involving the same player from this Federation.
Having in mind all legal aspects of any action against Mr. Ivanov, FIDE is going to bring this case before the FIDE Ethics Commission, for their follow up and decision. (FIDE)
