The three-member Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) Disciplinary Committee panel is now making its deliberations following yesterday's conclusion of the disciplinary hearing into the positive drug test of top Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown.
Chairman Lensley Wolfe, Dr Aggrey Irons and Lincoln Eatmon are expected to arrive at a final decision soon. This verdict will then be sent to the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), along with full transcripts, for ratification by the international track and field authority.
MISSED WORLD CHAMPS
Meanwhile, the JAAA has sought to explain why it presided over this particular case.
In a release late last night, the JAAA said: "At this international (IAAF World Challenge Meet), the IAAF was the testing authority and the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission was engaged as the sample-collection agency. The result management and disciplinary process falls under the aegis of the IAAF/JAAA, hence the empanelling of the association's Disciplinary Committee, headed by retired Chief Justice Lensley Wolfe.
"The decision by the Disciplinary Committee will be subject to review by the International Association of Athletics Federations," the release further read.
