The congress of the World Chess Federation – FIDE has confirmed the penalty, imposed by the European Chess Union to the Bulgarian Chess Federation, thus excluding it from the organization. It also requires immediate actions of the Ethic Committee against the BCF as an organization and against its board members in person. President of BCF Silvio Danailov has been banned from taking any positions within FIDE for a period of 18 months ahead, Dnevnik reports. The penalty of the ECU follows the refusal of BCF to provide payment documents for the period 2011 – 2014, when Silvio Danailov headed the European chess. The Bulgarian federation will appeal its expel before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.
