From the press release by ICGA president David Levy on June 28th 2011 that got worldwide news on media like CNN, the New York Times etc.

During the course of the investigation and upon presentation of the Secretariat’s report Vasik Rajlich did not offer, despite repeated invitations from the ICGA to do so, any kind of defence to the allegations, or to the evidence, or to the Secretariat’s report,


The truth of the matter is that Rajlich:

1. Did not had to cooperate;

2. And yet he did, in his own chosen way.

_______________________________________________

1. The reason Rajlich did not had to cooperate is simple, because there is nothing in the THEN (2006) tournament rules that said so.

Tournament rule #2
Each program must be the original work of the entering developers. Programming teams whose code is derived from or including game-playing code written by others must name all other authors, or the source of such code, in their submission details. Programs which are discovered to be close derivatives of others (e.g., by playing nearly all moves the same), may be declared invalid by the Tournament Director after seeking expert advice. For this purpose a listing of all game-related code running on the system must be available on demand to the Tournament Director.

All participants were obliged to have their source code available in case suspicion was raised during the tournament in order that the Tournament Director during the tournament could make an ad hoc decision about the raised suspicion during the tournament. There is nothing in the THEN tournament rules that can undo the results of the tournament after it has finished. The ICGA history of banned chess engines until 2011 before the Rybka investigation started shows that consistent pattern.

Meaning, by the rewrite of history stripping Rajlich from his 4 world titles ICGA president David Levy (notable) broke Tournament rule #2 himself!

Meanwhile rule #2 has undergone a major change among that, giving the ICGA the right of one year after the tournament to call for a source code inspection / investigation, admitting they did not had that right under the tournament rules of 2006.
