The IOC issued a statement Saturday regarding the allegations which were made in The Sunday Times, reports Xinhua.
“The Ethics Commission has received evidence from the newspaper and noted that each individual case merits a detailed analysis involving the hearing of all parties, particularly with regard to the existence of deliberate intent to breach the various rules that govern the sale of tickets for the Olympic Games,” read the statement.
