results of August’s Rio Olympics (Source: AP) Top News The incoming director general of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has said it could be years before the results of August’s Rio Olympics are upheld Last week saw Australian race walker Jared Tallent belatedly awarded a London 2012 Olympic gold medal after he was promoted from silver four years ago because of a Russian doping case “The storage of samples is a deterrent” Olivier Niggli told AFP in an interview on Monday “You can tell people if you cheat today because you think this is not detectable it will be detectable tomorrow” the Swiss lawyer said “This has an impact on the risks athletes take because they know they can lose their reputation afterwards ” added Niggli who will succeed long-serving New Zealander David Howman as WADA director general on July 1 “But the other side of the coin is that you may have to re-do the (medal) classification” explained Niggli on the sidelines of the WADA media symposium in London “But would we better off letting cheaters get away it Probably not Would we rather do that quicker probably yes but science’s pace is science’s pace “You don’t want to ruin the samples by re-testing too early” insisted Niggli with WADA’s statute of limitations on the holding of such samples currently set at 10 years “You may want to wait a little longer to let science progress “Maybe some innovative science will one day allow us to be quicker” Friday saw the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) uphold an international ban on Russia’s track and field competitors first imposed in November after a WADA report revealed state-sponsored doping and mass corruption in Russian athletics The Russia team is now ruled out of all athletics events in Rio although Russian athletes training outside the country can apply to compete as neutrals at the August 5-21 Games If the final results of Rio testing may not be known definitely for some time Niggli said that changing Russian attitudes was also likely to be a lengthy process “What we are observing now is that the top (in Russia) has changed their speech and are trying to say the right things but it doesn’t go further down “The entourage of the athletes the club coaches are very reluctant to accept that doping is not part of sports It’s likely to take a bit of time” Kenya one of the leading nations when it comes to middle and long-distance running is currently non-compliant with the WADA code But unlike Russia Niggli said he expected to see Kenyan athletes competing under their own flag in Rio “The Kenyan National Anti-Doping Agency is currently non-compliant” said Niggli who was previously WADA’s legal director from 2001-2011 before serving as a partner in a Lausanne-based law firm “But they are going through a process of changing their rules and need a final ratification by the president of their country “When this is done they will regain compliance “I think they will be in compliance The Kenyan Olympic athletes have been submitted to a robust testing programme by the IAAF ” It is not just Olympic sports that are covered by WADA In May Sri Lanka’s Kusal Perera was cleared to return to competition by the International Cricket Council having been provisionally suspended for some six months on the basis of what officials said was a botched doping analysis by a WADA-accredited laboratory in Qatar Wicket-keeper/batsman Perera is now a member of the Sri Lanka squad for a one-day international series in England due to start Tuesday and Niggli speaking at London’s Lord’s Cricket Ground said: “These things are always complicated because the science is not easy “But the lab made an assumption on the basis of a report which turned out not to be accurate and resulted in the reversal (of the ban) “We will look into it It’s unfortunate but it’s rare we have these cases” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Barcelona |

threatening messages to him from prison (Source: Reuters photo) Related News The Supreme Court of Pakistan is currently busy trying to enforce piety in Pakistan in the light of Articles 62 and 63 of the constitution It is certain that the judges will lean towards Islamic jurisprudence and stay away from the argument of work ethic as opposed to ritual worship The government in Islamabad is about to set up a uniform system of namaz Piety wins work ethic loses Most terrorists achieve piety through beards as they kill women and children in the country in the name of Allah Last month retired chief justice of the Supreme Court Nasim Hassan Shah passed away at 86 He was on the bench that handed the death sentence to Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Bhutto was sentenced by the Lahore High Court and the apex court rejected his appeal against the decision After his retirement Shah declared that it was a wrong decision “as it was a fit case for lesser punishment” General Zia-ul-Haq got the judges who had no love for Bhutto to do it because the latter was sending threatening messages to him from prison Why did Shah confess to a wrong sentencing after he as a member of the bench had validated Zia’s martial law Why was he named “Man of the Decade” for services to democracy and the rule of law by the American-Pakistan Alliance Washington DC on September 26 1993 He was short — only four feet eight inches tall — with a compensatory instinct for competition with “the normal guys” had a sense of humour and could give as good as he took in repartee After a brilliant academic career he was appointed as judge He was named one of Pakistan’s nominees to the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague in 1959 and served there till 1977 In the Supreme Court he allowed a Sindhi prime minister Benazir Bhutto to be dismissed by the president but saved a Punjabi Nawaz Sharif from being cashiered the same way A book by journalist Sohail Warraich Adliya key Arooj-o-Zawal ki Kahani (Story of the rise and fall of the judiciary) has the following Q&A exchange: Q: “Do we have any other example in Pakistan of a person being hanged on the basis of advice” A: “No never… During the case there was a view that Bhutto was not directly involved in the murder but [that the] Federal Security Force did it on his advice… In my view Bhutto’s punishment could have been reduced…” Anyway he didn’t dissent on the bench In reply to another question — “Was there any pressure on the judges” — he said “Justice Haleem was under pressure We had different kinds of pressures His only son lived in Karachi He said his life was in danger and he was very scared… basically what could the poor judges do There was one witness testimony after the other” Q: “Couldn’t you have been kinder to Bhutto as he was ex-prime minister” A: “The sentiments at that time were different and one has to do what one has to do” “During martial laws and under stress he proved himself to be a pliable judge” said a leader of the Bar in Lahore about Shah “Otherwise he was a good judge and a fine human being” Like almost all judges in Pakistan he was a conservative man He upheld piety and had to be seen abhorring impiety But piety doesn’t include ethic which remains a profound contradiction within most piety-based religions Ethic pertains to the observance of work-contract and is at times called “work ethic” to make it distinct from “morality” which unfortunately applies exclusively to correct sexual behaviour in Pakistan That’s the only way you can understand why Shah behaved the way he did He once got a plot of land allotted to himself in Karachi saying he was not comfortable staying in the Supreme Court resthouse when he heard cases at the Karachi bench But instead of building a house on it he allegedly sold it He remained pious by Pakistani standards In 2004 he regretted that the national language of Pakistan was not Arabic He referred to the language riots of 1948 in East Pakistan and said that had Arabic been suggested to “our Bengali brothers” they would have accepted it as their national language Shah was clearly out of his depth He was not given to reading books or he would have come across evidence to the contrary in Hassan Zaheer’s The Separation of East Pakistan (1994) The book by a senior civil servant who served in East Pakistan discusses the “the most grotesque suggestion” about enforcing Arabic in East Pakistan The idea was born in the mind of a non-Bengali education secretary of East Pakistan FA Karim who was able to convince the Bengali central education minister in Karachi Fazlur Rehman to adopt it It also caught the imagination of the Punjabi governor of East Pakistan Malik Feroz Khan Noon Thus started the equally grotesque scheme of writing Bengali in the Arabic script and in 1952 there were 21 centres doing this in East Pakistan with central education ministry funding The East Pakistan chief minister didn’t even know that this was happening outside the primary school stream which was a provincial subject Writes Hassan Zaheer: “Such was the insensitivity of the ruling party to popular issues that the East Pakistan Muslim League Council also recommended Arabic as the state language This was not acceptable even to the West Pakistan intelligentsia” What happened to the Muslim League in East Pakistan in the years that followed is history But even in its heyday the party was a fragmented entity part of it striving to keep Bengal united which was highlighted when Huseyn Suhrawardy became prime minister of undivided Bengal in 1946 Its demise happened when it tried to impose separate electorates on East Pakistan another medieval attempt at separating the nation on the basis of religion with which Shah had probably agreed The modern state separated religious morality from ethic and legislated on the basis of the latter What you do with the demands of piety is not the business of the state Any humane penal code is the repository of ethic Only a religious state will make its constitution demand piety as Pakistan’s does with some articles Protestantism in the 16th century broke from the Church of Rome because it saw religiosity overriding the socially more important requirement of work ethic You could actually buy “spiritual exemption” from the Church of Rome The ritual of Hajj does that job for us; even a qawwali can do it

aid to the war torn-state Outgoing PM Arseniy Yatsunyuk Reuters Lawmakers voted by 257 to 50 to approve the resignation of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk – condemned by President Petro Poroshenko for losing the public’s trust — and select Groysman in the first cabinet overhaul since Ukraine’s 2014 pro-EU revolt "I understand my responsiblities" the 38-year-old Groysman told deputies shortly before the vote He vowed to "ensure the permanence of our course toward European integration" and oversee a government "that does not tolerate corruption" Poroshenko himself called Groysman a lawyer by training "a politician from a new generation" "What do I expect from the new government The same thing our society does" the President said while presenting his candidate "The start of economic growth and an improvement in people’s well-being We have moved from a survival strategy which was fully justified in 2014-15 to a strategy of accelerated growth" The fast-rising new premier is a Poroshenko protege who only two years ago served as mayor of the small western Ukrainian city of Vinnytsia and remained a relative unknown He moved to Kiev and joined the government after the 2014 ouster of Ukraine’s Moscow-backed leadership and the country’s decision to strike a landmark EU trade and political association pact a shift out of Russia’s orbit Groysman was elected to parliament on Poroshenko’s party ticket in October 2014 and became speaker the following month He is seen as a coalition builder who has gained stature by keeping the notoriously rowdy parliament – prone to ugly brawls – in relative peace He has also pronounced himself strongly committed to the belt-tightening measures prescribed by the International Monetary Fund when it approved a $175-billion rescue package for Ukraine in March 2014 But some economists worry that the mild-mannered Groysman may lack the toughness needed to stand up to a handful of tycoons who have dominated Ukrainian politics and made the former Soviet republic a breeding ground for graft The new government may draw further concern of investors because it will not feature the respected US-born Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko
