WADA slams UCI`s decision on Lance Armstrong
Beijing: The World Anti-Doping Agency criticised the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) for disbanding an independent investigation commission into doping and called it "deceitful".
WADA Wednesday said in a statement that cycling`s world governing body "has again chosen to ignore its responsibility" by disbanding the commission examining UCI`s handling in the Lance Armstrong doping case.
The UCI announced Tuesday that they shut down the commission for lack of support from WADA and the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) whose probe led to seven time Tour de France Armstrong`s fall from grace late last year.
Instead, the UCI planned to set up a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC)" that it claimed in the Tuesday statement was supported by WADA President John Fahey.
"This is not only wrong in content and process, but again deceitful. The fact is that WADA was awaiting a reply to the correspondence when the UCI release was delivered," said WADA.
"WADA has not and will not consider partaking in any venture with UCI while this unilateral and arrogant attitude continues."
