Ex-WADA chief investigator: Association’s president ‘sat on Russian doping allegations’
Former official criticizes WADA’s head for taking Russia’s side in doping scandal, - Business Insider
Jack Robertson, former chief investigator for the World Anti-Doping Agency claims his efforts to investigate Russian doping were repeatedly delayed by WADA's president, who preferred to privately settle matters with Russian officials, reads the article at Business Insider.
According to Robertson, who left the WADA in January 2016, he was ‘forced to leak information to the media in order to pressure WADA president Sir Craig Reedie to act and, even then, he says, the agency sat on credible allegations that suggested Russian doping extended far beyond track and field’.
'Robertson, speaking publicly at length for the first time, reserved his harshest criticisms for Reedie, who also holds the potentially conflicting role of vice president of the IOC.
