Jamaica’s two-time Olympic 200-metre champion Veronica Campbell-Brown will hold a press conference at the Jamaica Pegasus in Kingston next Friday to speak on issues regarding recent "doping allegations".

An advisory from Campbell-Brown’s legal defence and management teams says the press conference is aimed at providing a full understanding of the entire process, from charge to acquittal.

The advisory further said the team would outline the pertinent issues and answer any outstanding questions relating to the disciplinary hearings, along with the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) ruling and the final decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Last year the disciplinary committee of the Jamaica Administrative Association recommended a reprimand following Campbelll-Brown's positive test for a banned diuretic.

However, the IAAF rejected the recommendation and secretly banned the 31-year-old sprinter for two years.

Campbell-Brown then took the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport which overturned by the ban.
