IBF Special Ethics Committee Decision No. 8

The Israel Bridge Federation Special Ethics Committee open hearings on November 8 and 10 to deal with accusations against Lotan Fisher and Ron Schwartz.  The panel, in a decision released on October 27, required Fisher and Schwartz to respond to all 27 documents that have been received, detailing accusations of illegally passing information by two methods -- placement of boards on the table prior to the opening lead and coughing during the bidding.  The hearings will be filmed, recorded and transcribed.  (There is no indication if the hearings, presumably in Hebrew, will be translated into any other language).  Date corrected; thanks Amir.

The committee also identified the three authors of the "Israeli Doctors" document presented to it, as requested by Fisher and Schwartz and agreed to by the authors -- Amir Levin, Bar Tarnovsky and Eldad Ginossar, all Israelis with international experience.
