NOC Indonesia News Update 10 Jan 2022
WADA Sanction's Taskforce continues its work to meet the compliant status for Indonesia in 2022 by planning to organize a virtual meeting soon.
Head of the Taskforce, Raja Sapta Oktohari, had a meeting with the General Director of Southeast Asia Regional Anti-Doping Organization (SEARADO), Gobinathan Nair, in Singapore in late December to report the progress.
"We are close to settling three important matters - communication, administration, and technical. Currently, we urge WADA to review the sanction. After discussing with Mr. Nair, we need to complete a few things in early 2022. The most important thing is we must apply the NADO blueprint template and complete the Test Distribution Plan for 2022," Okto said while adding that it would be discussed in Monday's meeting with the Indonesian Anti-Doping Agency, LADI.
He also said that the Taskforce urged LADI to complete its responsibility and meet the deadline given by WADA. After LADI completes its task, the Taskforce will ask WADA to review the sanction.
"I told Mr. Nair that ANOC and APSF are waiting for the sanction's lifting as Indonesia is a candidate for ANOC World Beach Games in 2023 and ASEAN Para Games this year. As I always said, we're not trying to fix a broken car. We're building a brand new Formula 1 car so everything has to meet the regulations, and it's what we're working on together," Okto said.
