Presseerklärung der ACP

20.02.2007 – Die Spielergewerkschaft ACP hat in einer Presseerklärung ihren Standpunkt zu den in jüngster Zeit vorgebrachten Betrugsvorwürfen deutlich gemacht. Die ACP sieht sich außerstande, die Vorgänge auf der Basis der vorhandenen Fakten zu beurteilen. Stattdessen betrachtet die ACP gegenseitige Beschuldigungen und Verdächtigungen, Gerüchte und Presse-Artikel, zu diesem Thema als schädlich für das Schach. Dennoch sei das Problem möglichen Betruges mit Hilfe technischer Mittel auf allen Ebenen durchaus real und man müsse sich diesem stellen. Die Lösung gemäß der ACP seien geeignete Turnierbedingungen, in denen Betrugsmöglichkeiten unterbunden seien. Die ACP habe entsprechende Vorschläge der FIDE unterbreitet.

Press release of the ACP Board

In view of some recent events in the cheating controversy and several hasty comments from the press, the ACP Board has decided to clarify its position on the matter.

The ACP Board does not believe to have the power to establish a verdict based on the available evidences on whether certain players made use of illegal means to improve their playing strength and results. We find it wiser, however, to concentrate our energy on trying to find solutions to the problem of cheating in general.

The situation has become unpleasant, to say the least. Rumours can be very harmful. Recent allegations and articles published in the press create an unhealthy situation in the chess world. We are afraid that a tense atmosphere of reciprocal suspicion among chess players may install itself at future top-tournaments.

We consider it our duty to make everything possible to prevent such a scenario to happen. It would be wrong, however, to pretend that cheating in chess cannot exist, or that no one would ever cheat. Bearing in mind that progress in technology and electronics undoubtedly create more and more cheating opportunities, the problem is real. In our view, the solution involves creating tournament conditions which will not allow cheating altogether. Some important measures have to be taken. It seems obvious, however, that all steps will not be applicable to all kinds of tournaments. The more participants, the more difficult the chance to create perfect conditions.

The ACP Board has written a letter to FIDE in which a set of concrete measures have been proposed to prevent cheating opportunities. A similar letter will also be sent to organizers of the most famous tournaments.

Thus, we hope that temptation will no longer be possible, and that rumours will consequently disappear. The integrity of our chess elite is at stake. We expect a fruitful discussion to lead to important decisions in this matter.

ACP Board
