The AFLD disciplinary commission claims to have received a letter from WADA “ordering him to modify his behavior” under penalty of triggering a non-compliance procedure and possible sanctions, according to a press release sent to AFP.

The commission said it had “learned with amazement of this incredible attempt at pressure”.

In a letter last month, WADA, the Montreal-based sports doping watchdog, identified three recent cases in which it criticized the AFLD for “not being tough enough”.


WADA accuses the French agency of making decisions “manifestly inconsistent with neither the World Anti-Doping Code nor the jurisprudence of the Court of Arbitration for Sport”.

Only eleven months before the Paris Olympics, the AFLD press release accuses WADA of “true blackmail”.

“He threatens to initiate proceedings which could lead to the banning of French athletes from participating in certain international competitions, including the Olympic Games, and to ban France from hosting such competitions”, warns the press release.

“Since its inception, the Disciplinary Commission has made several hundred decisions, none of which have been challenged by WADA,” the statement added.

In 2018, the French anti-doping monitoring body was split into two branches.

The AFLD controls and carries out investigations and proposes sanctions to athletes suspected of doping.

But it is up to its independent disciplinary commission to oversee these investigations and impose sanctions.
