Yes the original case was that he slandered the UCI (and McQuaid and Verbruggen) but all that is left now is the Verbruggen case. It really has nothing to do with Cookson, unless of course he may be called as a witness. Or perhaps there is info in the CIRC process that will implicate Verbruggen - again if thats the case then Cookson may have been advised to say nothing.Dear Wiggo said:TheSpud is saying the case is between Kimmage and another person - missing the point that it was started by the UCI.
I think Cookson can and should do more - an opinion to which I am entitled. Based on what CIRC turn up, if anything. HV should be pulling his head in unless he thinks the CIRC is toothless. It's a bit of a catch-22 but to say Cookson has no part is, imo, not quite right.
The chances are that CIRC will report before this case gets settled, which if it implicates Verbruggen will likely save Kimmage.
