The Head of the Organising Committee of the Olympiad answered to Kirsan Ilyumzhinov's request 

As we've already reported Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the President of FIDE, once again asked Mr. Yazici, the Head of the Organising Committee of the Olympiad and the Vice-President of FIDE, to settle the case regarding Evgeny Surov's accreditation. According to the information we managed to obtain from the FIDE President's assistant, Mr. Yazici had to answer on Mr. Ilyumzhinov's request.

Yesterday late at night two texts in Russian and English languages named "Announcement" were published on the official website of the Olympiad. Both texts were signed by Ali Nihat Yazici and literally expressed his answer on the FIDE President's request regarding the accreditation of editor-in-chief of Chess-News; however those were two different texts. The harsh tone of the English text is so to say "softer" than the Russian one in which Mr. Surov is mentioned as a "blackmailer" and as a person "in contact with mafia", moreover Russian text includes the quote which has been ascribed to Mr. Surov: "either you will do it or I will shoot your leg."

We have published the correct translation of the Mr.Yazici's announcement which shows that the English version of the text didn't contain any of the abovementioned expressions. 

We have saved the screenshot of the Russian text (the underlining is made by us). 


We also got to know from different sources that the question regarding Mr. Surov's accreditation has been discussed today at the FIDE Congress. Namely, Berik Balgabaev, the FIDE President assistant tweeted the following:

"We have heard the account of the President. He once again asked to give Surov the accreditation. Ali has answered."

We asked one of the participants of the FIDE Congress (he preferred not to be named) to tell us what was Mr. Yazici's answer to Mr. Ilyumzhinov's request. After a long pause our source suggested that the answer given by the Head of the Organising Committee of the Olympiad should be interesting for the psychiatry, not for the Mass Media.
