|Oct-09-08|| ||wordfunph: Two players, Shaun Press of Papua New Guinea and Bobby Miller of Bermuda, refused, for various reasons, to submit urine samples for analysis. Both players appeared before a FIDE disciplinary panel, which decided to cancel the players' performances Press had scored 7.5 over 14 games, while Miller had scored 3.5 points over 9 games), reducing the final score of Papua New Guinea to 15.5 (from 23.0) and that of Bermuda to 18.5 (from 22.0).|

His opponent in this game that was played at the Calvia Olympiad, D Gajadin vs S Press, 2004, was on the panel and cast the deciding vote to cancel all Shaun's games from the Olympiad.
As <FSR> mentioned: <Evidently the concept of "conflict of interest" is unknown to Dr. Gajadin.>
