“Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat” is a Latin phrase which means “the burden of the proof lies upon him who affirms, not him who denies”.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 11, states: “Everyone charged with a penal offense has the right to be presumed innocent until proved Guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defense.”.
But in absence of any evidence of actual facts, we Screwed Russia at the Winter Olympics 2018…
Court of Arbitration for Sport Secretary General Matthieu Reeb said…
“The duty of the IOC (International Olympic Committee) was to show that the athletes involved in this case were guilty of an anti-doping rule violation. The fact that you cannot establish the evidence of guilt does not mean that you have established the innocence of the athletes,”
“The fact that they were not able to show the guilt of an athlete does not mean that the athlete has nothing to do at all with the case, and is totally innocent,” Reeb said, calling it a “logical consequence.”
“There’s nothing bad about it,” he added.
Therefore, by the standards I hear from Sport Secretary General Matthieu Reeb, I would expect any and all Olympic Teams in the world, should be suspended immediately…
For every country has doping cheats and thus no one, due to Reeb’s statement, “The fact that you cannot establish the evidence of guilt does not mean that you have established the innocence of the athletes” has a right to be in the Olympics this year…
It is and would be ignorant to impose upon the world. Then why is it all hunky-dory to impose it upon innocent athletes from Russia?
You are innocent until proven guilty You are guilty until you supply the burden of proof to clear yourself. That is against all accusations, whether those accusations have substance or not…
They screwed Russia over, “Just because they can!”
