DEVELOPING : IOC's scathing reaction to the closure of Olympic House

As we reported a little over a week ago that the International Olympic Committee will not take kindly to the dictatorship attempts at the politicization of the GNOC,  The International Olympic Committee has reacted scathingly and firmly with ultimatum to the Minister of Youth and Sports.  Since the letter was dated yesterday 14th April, 2014, we will allow reasonable time for the regime to respond before we report fully on the matter.  The regime is culpable but, as we have seen in the previous case of the Gambia Football Federation's arbitrary banning of football officials, supporters of this regime lurking behind and doing the bidding for Yaya Jammeh are equally culpable.  In fact, they are the drivers of these recent spats of interference in the affairs of the independent and apolitical sports federations.
