Paris (RWH) The International Partnership against Corruption in Sport (IPACS) Steering Committee decided to set up a new task force in order to increase the cooperation between criminal justice authorities/law enforcement and sport organisations. This was reported by the International Olympic Committee IOC.
Martins Dambergs (Latvia), IBSF Vice President Legal Affairs, is member of the IPACS Steering Committee and attended the meeting in Paris on 1 July.
IPACS was launched at the IOC’s International Forum for Sports Integrity (IFSI) in February 2017 for a coordinated response to tackle corruption in sport.
To start with, the new task force will take stock of existing anti-bribery legislation applicable to the private sector, and create a list of existing networks of judicial authorities / law enforcement agencies through which its work could be supported and promoted. ©RWH2019
