Olympics: India must bar corrupted officials to qualify for games
NEW DELHI (AFP) - The International Olympic Committee has told India it must bar all corruption-tainted officials from its local Olympics body if it wants to return to the Games after being banned last year, an official and reports said on Friday.
The IOC has sent a 43-page draft constitution that needs to be adopted by the suspended Indian Olympic Association (IOA) before its next elections in September, an Indian Olympics official said.
"We have received the IOC draft and we will look into it," said the official, who did not want to be named.
Local media reported that the draft, accompanied by a letter from IOC's head of institutional relations Jerome Poivey, stressed the need to keep corrupt officials out of sports administration.
