Delegates including Bermuda Olympic Association President Judy Simons and Secretary General Stanley Douglas are beginning to arrive here for an Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) General Assembly which is set to be overshadowed by allegations of forgery against current President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah.
Sheikh Ahmad is due to be re-elected as the head of the umbrella organization during the gathering of the 206 National Olympic Committees in Tokyo Wednesday November 28th and Thursday 29th.
It comes despite the emergence of fresh allegations of wrongdoing against the key Olympic powerbroker, who denies the charges, on the eve of the meeting.
Sheikh Ahmad has stepped aside as a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and as head of the Olympic Solidarity Commission pending the outcome of an Ethics Commission hearing into the accusations.
Swiss newspaper Le Temps claimed prosecutor Stéphane Grodecki has accused Sheikh Ahmad and other defendants of creating fake videos as part of a plot against two Kuwaiti Government officials.
