Dear French chess federation, dear ECU, dear chess community,

In view of the rumours and allegations about possible cheating using electronic devices and outside help taking place during the European Individual Ch in Aix les Bains, we have an atmosphere that makes it impossible for the players to approach their games calmly and being sure that their opponents do not break the rules.

We therefore demand that

* the arbiters reserve the rights to search any player´s pockets in case of suspicion
* no electronic devices can be brought into the playing hall, switched off or otherwise
* electronic boards can be unplugged if one of the players demands it.
