LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The IOC says its ethics commission ended an investigation into Olympic official Alex Gilady after cases of alleged sexual harassment were settled in Israel.
The International Olympic Committee says its ethics panel closed the file after all parties “accepted their respective explanations.”
Gilady, a former NBC Sports executive and IOC member since 1994, was accused of inappropriate behavior in the 1990s by two journalists in Israel.
In 2017, Gilady said “there was no intention to harm,” and later filed libel suits.
