President of the Ground Jury for Jumping for the 2008 Olympic Games Resigns
RELEASE: June 21, 2007
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Malina Gueorguiev
FEI Official International Judge Rogier Van Iersel (NED) has resigned from his position as president of the ground jury for jumping for the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong. The decision of Van Iersel is based on the fact that he is also team manager of the Saudi Arabian Jumping Team, which may have resulted in a potential conflict of interest should the two functions be performed concurrently.
The FEI wishes to thank Van Iersel for his fair play decision, which is entirely in line with its Code of Ethics and Conflict of Interest Policy and its constant efforts to ensure honest, transparent and fair sport.
A new president of the ground jury for jumping will be selected and announced soon. The full list of officials involved in the 2008 Olympic Games is available on www.horsesport.org
