The suggestion will be considered at the nearest FIDE Congress

The President of the Turkish Chess Federation and the Vice President of FIDE Ali Nihat Yazici wrote a letter to the FIDE Executive Director Nigel Freeman.

Dear Mr.Freeman,

As you know 5 federations of FIDE (French, USCF, Ukraine, German, Switzerland) have sued in 2010 FIDE, together with Karpov and they lost court case, and FIDE has spent 1.000.000 USD to defend itself.

We are very worried after that for the court case with very similar political reason, Georgian Chess Federation and English Chess Federation has opened against FIDE in Cas.

It looks like, only to give a damage those bad examples may increase in the future. For me it is very big pain seeing that this huge amount of money instead of being used for chess went to waste. The situation should not stay as it is and w should react that. That is not acceptable.

Therefore, we ask FIDE General Assembly in Istanbul that those 7 federations must be given suspension from FIDE including players, arbiters, trainers, ratings and organising FIDE rated events, till damage is covered by those federations.

Also to stop those court cases in the future without any reason we propose to add a mechanism before going to court. Our proposal is all decisions in FIDE management maybe appealed in FIDE Ethical Commission. Only FIDE Ethical Commission decisions may be challenged in CAS. We know that we should change statue and some legal issues. But if we stay what we are and doing nothing for that matter, this abusing manner will be repeated.

We will be happy if you confirm that you got this e-mail on 7th June 2012 and will carry it to agenda of General Assembly.

Best regards,

Ali Nihat YAZICI 
President of Turkish Chess Federation

Yazici's suggestion is included in the agenda of the 83rd FIDE Congress.
