MOSCOW, June 27. /TASS/. The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has sent to the French Ministry of Justice required documents for the investigation into alleged corruption in the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), Alexander Kurennoi, a spokesman for the office, said on Monday.
Kurennoi said that the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office is cooperating with the relevant bodies in France "on a criminal case regarding corruption allegations in the International Association of Athletics Federation."
The French Justice Ministry sent a legal assistance request to Russia on November 13, 2015 asking for cooperation in the investigation regarding a number of executive officials in the IAAF.
The request in particular concerned some officials from the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) over their possible involvement in violations of anti-doping regulations by athletes and their and issuance of permission for doping abusers to take part in athletic tournaments.
