Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel vice-chairman sent on leave

Published:Tuesday | May 6, 2014 | 2:10 PM

The Vice-chairman of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel, attorney-at-law Lennox Gayle, who has a case before the Courts, has been sent on leave of absence.



The confirmation came from a release issued from the Office of the Prime Minister a short while ago.



The release said Gayle would not be assigned to any hearing panel pending the conclusion of the case before the Courts.



Gayle was arrested in April following allegations that he has been benefiting from the earnings of prostitutes.



He was offered bail in the sum of $400,000 with surety.



He was listed at a person of interest before the arrest.



It is alleged that he runs a massage parlour in Montego Bay where it is believed that prostitution is taking place.



He is accused of false and misleading conduct.



Gayle was the chairman of the three-member Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary panel, which banned top Jamaican sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson for 18 months each in April.



The two athletes tested positive for the banned stimulant oxilofrine at the Jamaican trials in June 2013.
