A wanted notice has been issued by Interpol for Papa Massata Diack, the son of former International Association of Athletics Federations President Lamine, calling for his arrest for alleged corruption and money laundering.
A "red notice" was posted on Interpol’s website, claiming that the former IAAF marketing consultant is “wanted by the judicial authorities of France for prosecution to serve a sentence”.
Papa Diack was handed a life ban from athletics last week after the IAAF Ethics Commission found him guilty of accepting money as part of a blackmail plot to cover up doping cases involving Russian athleties.
His father was arrested by French police in November for alleged involvement.
French prosecutor Éliane Houlette confirmed that Papa Diack remains in Senegal and is not cooperating with the ongoing investigation.
News broke of the Interpol notice, first sent out last month, shortly before the publication of the second part of the WADA Independent Commission's report here today, littered with references to Diack's wrongdoings.
Another son of Lamine, Khalil Diack, is also mentioned in the report in relation only to Turkey's Aslı Çakır Alptekin, winner of the Olympic gold medal in 1500 metres at London 2012 before she was stripped of her because of doping.
She had been recommended to deal with him rather than Papa.
