Olympic ethics panel closes case on IOC member Gilady
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) --- The IOC says its ethics commission ended an
investigation into Olympic official Alex Gilady after cases of alleged sexual
harassment were settled in Israel.
The International Olympic Committee says its ethics panel closed the file after
all parties "accepted their respective explanations."
Gilady, a former NBC Sports executive and IOC member since 1994, was accused of
inappropriate behavior in the 1990s by two journalists in Israel.
In 2017, Gilady said "there was no intention to harm," and later filed libel
Israeli media reported this month that a mediation process resolved the cases.
The 76-year-old Gilady is vice chairman of an Olympic panel overseeing the 2020
Tokyo Games, and a member of the 2024 Paris Games panel.
