The ECU President threatens to challenge FIDE in court

Chessdom cites the ECU President Silvio Danailov's interview for the Bulgarian National Radio and local media, in which he talked about FIDE's desicion to organize the Candidates tournament in London. 

"I will not allow such a mockery. Bulgaria and Azerbaijan have made their bid on time, while London does not have such. As a member of the FIDE Presidential board no one has informed me about any contracts. Ilyumzhinov can talk what he wants. When I see on paper the contract with Agon, with lawyers we will go to the CAS Sports Court in Lausanne. The Bulgarian Chess Federation worked long on this bid, we have talked to sponsors, ministers, and even the Prime Minister".

Danailov also wonders about two parallel contracts FIDE has signed with CNC and Agon.  

"In 2010 FIDE already signed such a contract with a Russian businessman and his company CNC. How come now we have yet another contract, if the one with the Russians is not terminated?"

According to Chessdom, Danailov clarified that he has seen the proposal for the contract with Agon in December, but the "Offshore company Agon" was created in January. "This in itself confirms that probably Agon was created especially for serving the chess related tasks"  writes Chessdom
