Paralympic.org: The IPC opens suspension proceedings against NPC Russia
In addition to Monday’s report, the IPC received additional information from Richard McLaren the report’s author
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has opened suspension proceedings against the National Paralympic Committee of Russia (NPC Russia) following the publication of the McLaren Report on Monday (18 July) and additional information it has since received from the report’s author.
After fully evaluating Richard McLaren’s “Independent Person Report”, together with additional data provided to the IPC by the report’s author, the IPC Governing Board on Friday (22 July) ratified a decision to open suspension proceedings against NPC Russia in light of its apparent inability to fulfil its IPC membership responsibilities and obligations.
In particular, in light of the prevailing doping culture endemic within Russian sport, at the very highest levels, NPC Russia appears unable or unwilling to ensure compliance with and the enforcement of the IPC’s Anti-Doping Code within its own national jurisdiction. The IPC considers this vital to ensuring athletes are able to compete on a level playing field.
The suspension of NPC Russia will now be considered in accordance with the IPC Suspension Policy. That process will include, amongst other things, appropriate dialogue with NPC Russia in order to afford them due process and to allow them to present their case.
