    [04] THE BRITISH PRESS LAUNCHED AN ATTACK AGAINST THE IAAF PRESIDENT

    London 6 August (MPA)

    The British press launched an attack against the IAAF President Primo Nebiolo accusing him of playing a dirty game aimed at undermining the efforts made by Athens to host the 2004 Olympic Games.

    The "Financial Times" maintains that mr.Nebiolo leads Rome's efforts to host the 2004 Olympic Games and he did not miss the chance to accuse the Greeks for the small number of spectators present in the 100m finals last weekend.

    The "Daily Mail" accuses mr.Nebiolo of being a man with more ambitions than Hitler or Napoleon, while it expresses skepticism and doubt regarding his intentions. The newspaper also underlines that mr.Nebiolo must have been very glad to see the Olympic Stadium half empty. It should be reminded that mr.Nebiolo in the past had openly supported the Rome candidature for the hosting of the 2004 Olympic Games.

    According to New York sources, the United Nations are very encouraged by the agreement reached by Clerides and Denktash on the issue of the missing since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus and based on the existing indications, the UN officials will soon appoint a new representative to the Fact-Finding Committee for the Missing.
