MOC scandal: “Resignations are in order” - AD
AD has called for the resignations of Mr Justice Lino Farrugia Sacco and Joseph Cassar from their Malta Olympic Committee posts.
In a statement, it said it noted the contents of the investigation by the Ethics Committee of the International Olympic Committee wherein it was concluded that Mr Justice Farrugia Sacco and Joseph Cassar, president and secretary general of the MOC, were prepared to violate the rules of the Olympic Movement.
AD deputy chairman Carmel Cacopardo said: “It has also been noted that the Malta Olympic Committee as well as Messrs Farrugia Sacco and Cassar have been invited by the IOC Ethics Committee to appropriate action in the absence of such actions, the executive committee of IOC will consider itself the appropriate measures applicable.
“In view of the above AD considers that Mr Justice Lino Farrugia Sacco and Mr Joe Cassar should resign forthwith from their MOC posts.”
Mr Cacopardo said AD regretted that the Commission for the Administration of Justice did not conclude an investigation requested by Justice Minister Chris Said on June 19.
He called on the Commission to pull up its socks and conclude its investigation at the earliest.
