The second part of a report into corruption at World Athletics has accused former President Lamine Diack of being responsible for ‘‘organising and enabling the conspiracy that took place at the IAAF.’‘
The report says Diack had established his own “informal, illegitimate governance structure” at the IAAF in a bid to help cover up systematic doping in Russia.
Wada independent commission member Richard McLaren said: “He inserted his personal legal advisor Habib Cisse into the IAAF medical and anti doping department in November of 2011, with the London 2012 and Moscow 2013 Championships looming up. He did so to enable Cisse to manage and follow up Russian athlete biological passport cases.”
French authorities are currently investigating Diack as well as Cisse and Diack’s son Massata for corruption.
