Sofia. “The demand by Kramnik’s manager Carsten Hensel for disqualification of Veselin Topalov is another attempt at rejecting our invitation for a world chess championship title match in April next year in Sofia,” Silvio Danailov, manager of Veselin Topalov said. According to him, Kramnik’s team again makes scenes of the type, “The thief calls out: Get the thief.”
“May FIDE tell the public why it didn’t publish the photos showing the cables in the toilet of the Russian and the documents proving their existence and signed by the chairman of the Organization Committee Valeriy Bovaev.
The resignation of the second Committee of Appeal, whose members wanted to leave Elista because of the cables, was deliberately concealed,” Topalov’s manager said. He called on FIDE’s Ethic Commission to demand from the Organization Committee the records of the rooms of the two chess players, which showed Kramnik’s unusual toilet visits.
