The key wording there is regarding "alleged" ethical breaches during "internal" disciplinary procedure."

The only thing FIDE could muster up by way of any charge against Rajlich is a warning !

Apparently , they also weren't convinced he had  code copied Fruit. I would imagine the warning is based on the lack of explicitly giving credit to those he borrows idea from ; and,  that incident over Crafty. At least that would be my take.

[edit]

Let's look at Dr. Robert Hyatt's response to the FIDE Ethics Commission rulings and to FIDE in general.

The complaint was made by Rajlich against the ICGA. And it was the ICGA that was given the warning.

In that you are correct. As the ICGA should have done the same with Rajlich re: Crafty!

[edit]
This is not rocket science.

Okay! FIDE clarified  that the "alleged" ethical breaches of misconduct were strongly suggested.

Breaches of misconduct were validated.

Indicating a strong bias in the ICGA inquiry. Borne out by the fact that ""no"" copied Fruit code was found. Only the Crafty issue. 

The most that they could have done "is" given Rajlich a "warning". Juxtaposition that against the FIDE response against the ICGA!

Learn to read between the lines.

Of course !

FIDE has no authority deciding the case for or against Rajlich, Hyatt may be right in that instant. 

FIDE  doesn't have jurisdiction over what the ICGA does over its internal matters.

But FIDE  does know its own rules and its own "ethical"  boundaries, and is smart enough to know how to  penetrate into issues like this one.

It doesn't matter if that issue has its basis internally in  a club like that of the ICGA.

Ethically issues know no boundaries! 

No club is exempt from being challenged for its unethical behavior in any sport. Perhaps , Dr. Hyatt needs to become acquainted with that fact.

If the ICGA accepts this to be the case, then it has no claim to calling any event the "World Computer Chess Championship".

Just to elaborate on your point, Dr. Hyatt's penchant for falling back on the argument that the ICGA is a private club, that  can make its own rules. Then just as quickly  turn on a dime- claiming on other hand that the  IGCA is  steward over the entire computer chess community having the authority to  crown the next world computer chess champion is  amazing. Talk about inflated ego!
