Fees are going to go up. This is going to be costly


Re: Kasparov Banned by FIDE - Ianbrownlee - 22-10-2015

whats the background to this and why are fees going up?


Re: Kasparov Banned by FIDE - Alex McFarlane - 22-10-2015

It has to do with the way that the election campaign was conducted.

There was an alleged promise of money being transferred on condition of a guarantee of votes.

I assume increased fees will result if a court case in CAS has to be defended.
