Complaint at the International Olympic Committee
Complaint before Ethics Commission of the International Olympic Committee
On the 11 September 2003, the TRIAL association, member of the Kissinger Out! campaign, filed a complaint with the Ethics Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), requesting that Mr. Henry Kissinger be divested of the title of honorary member of the IOC.
Mr. Henry Kissinger stands accused of having been involved in acts incompatible with the ethical standards of the IOC, an organisation which promotes peace, cross-cultural understanding and the respect of human dignity.
The complaint filed reproached Mr. Kissinger for his participation in criminal acts in Chili, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and East Timor.
The request that Mr. Kissinger be excluded from the IOC is the first stage in an international campaign which will shortly be demanding the revocation of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Mr. Henry Kissinger in 1973, as well as his exclusion from the UNESCO Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize jury.
