Statement from WADA President John Fahey on UCI independent commission

December 13, 2012

I can confirm that WADA has been contacted by lawyers representing the independent commission established by the UCI, cycling’s governing body, and has agreed to meet with them in the near future to discuss WADA’s possible involvement in the process that has been proposed by the UCI.

However, WADA has some significant concerns about the commission’s terms of reference and has alerted the lawyers representing the commission of its concerns.

If WADA’s concerns cannot be resolved as a result of this meeting, WADA will consider seriously whether it can take part in the commission’s process.

WADA will make no further public comment on the matter until after the meeting.
