The International anti-doping agency (Wada) to take a Friday to reply to a critical us government report, which according to Wada is filled with errors and inaccuracies.
This writes the news agency Reuters.
In the report from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) advised the american politicians to consider withholding funding of Wada, if dopingagenturet not immediately change its way of working.
in Particular, Wadas management of a comprehensive Russian doping incident is criticised in the report, which is forwarded to Congress in Washington D. C.
But the report, published on Wednesday, according to the president of the Wada, Witold Banka, misleading.
Banka accuses directly the director of the ONDCP, James Carroll, to ignore the erroneous information in the report.
Wada urges Carroll to correct the defects and deliver an updated version of the report to legislators in Congress.
Moreover, blames he ONDCP to disregard Wadas input to the report.
- You chose not to take our clarifications with. As the proverb saith, 'why let the truth get in the way of a good story'?, writes Banka in a letter to James Carroll, which Reuters has seen.
- I would think that you want to the UNITED states Congress, as well as the relevant committees decide on the funding of Wada is based on the correct information, adds Banka.
It is a reference to that in the report questioned whether the UNITED states will get something out of his financial contributions to Wada.
With a good 2.7 million dollar in years is the UNITED states the largest government contributor to Wada, which has an annual budget of 37.4 billion u.s. dollars.
Witold Banka has in his letter attached a summary of the Wadas view of the report, where it is repeated, that ONDCP's evaluations are filled with 'several inaccuracies, misconceptions and untruths', writes the news agency AFP.
