WARNING! THIS IS NOT AN INDEPENDENT
Salt Lake City Scandal REPORT
The "inside" report on the Salt Lake City scandal
Warning that this is not an independent report, but a report
commissioned by the SLOC.
There is some fascinating information in it, nonetheless.
Canada's own Mahmoud
Al Farnawani is prominently featured, including his role in facilitating
series of cash payments to the relative of an IOC member.
On the Mahmoud Al Farnawani front, it's interesting to check
out the latest
"ethics" report from Salt Lake City, which is posted
to the official 2002
website. The ethics panel was appointed by the "trustees"
for the bid, so
don't expect much in the way of thorough investigation. However,
the careful and measured tones of that report, Mahmoud is clearly
as being associated with at least one $15,000 or so "gift"
from the "overly
generous" Salt Lake bid committee. He is clearly named as
having set up the
bribe. As well, the Haggman's are prominently mentioned in the
Perhaps this information should be drawn to the attention of
Toronto's own Mr.
Clean - Mr. Justice Dubin.
Again, an independent forensic audit is clearly needed for
Toronto's failed 1996 bid.
