zanzibar: It seems to have been an incident in the past which didn't result in long-term penalties, as recent FIDE results show:
A bit curious that this April(?) event shows up as June 2016, especially given as it's currently May (right?):
Oh well, it is FIDE after all.
I tried to find out more details about the incident (I admit to having trouble interpreting the google translation of <chancho>'s post).
But I did find this post in a google cached Reddit page:
<Online cheater allowed to play in FIDE tournaments? (self.chess)
submitted 46 minutes ago by GoldNovaPawn1800 FIDE
The FIDE online Arena held their World Blitz Junior Championship last year in October, a young prodigy that is 9 years old with now a 2250 rating played in it, Ilya Makoveev finished 1st with 9/11, but was then later disqualified for cheating, should cheaters caught cheating online in OFFICIAL Fide (online) rated events be treated like normal standard OTB cheaters? in Ilya Makoveev's recent tournament he went +110 and is now 2250 at 9 years old, I'm not trying to witchhunt him or take that away from him, but wouldn't his opponents be suspicious of him?
Again, that was just one example, should players who cheat in Official FIDE Rated online events be treated like normal cheaters?
So, if I read this right, the incident occurred in online-play, and not classic otb play.
