LAHORE - Pakistan Olympic Association (POA) president Lt Gen (retd) Syed Arif Hasan Wednesday said the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had been taking serious view of the formation of parallel Olympic associations by the POA interim committee. Talking to the reporters here at the closing ceremony of the International Women Cycling Championship, Gen Arif said: “This matter is in the knowledge of the IOC which will also discuss it in its meeting next month in Switzerland.” The POA chief sounded very confident when asked that the recent decisions of the interim committee to disrupt the smooth working of the POA saying those were illegal steps and were clear violation of Olympic charter and could draw an action of the IOC.  “Our so far positive efforts have averted any disciplinary action or suspension by the IOC as we are trying to resolve the issue with mutual understanding through dialogue with those who are aiming to cause confusion with their time-to-time announcements and actions,” he added. “Our doors are open to everyone but we will not tolerate any illegal action or formation of provincial Olympic association as recently announced in Sindh,” said Gen Arif.
