(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 24 – Whips on the House committee for
culture, education, and sport said Wednesday “all the political
forces have signed a resolution on the House committee for
culture, education, and sport to urge the government and CONI
(Italian Olympic Committee) to ask competent international
sporting bodies to allow race walker Alex Schwazer to be
allowed to take part in the Tokyo Olympics, in light of what
emerged in the judicial seat (where he was recently cleared of
doping). The document will be put up for debate and voted
unanimously in the next session, scheduled for Tuesday March 30.
    “This act is a clear signal that parliament wants to give to the
IOC (International Olympic Committee) so that it reassesses the
ban inflicted on the athlete until 2024, in light of the
shelving (of the case) by the Bolzano court in the criminal
proceedings that saw him indicted for doping. In fact, for the
international sporting bodies the ban is still in force, despite
Schwazer’s innocence having been proved in the judicial seat”.
