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.
