Doping official sent on leave

KINGSTON, Jamaica  – An attorney who is a top official with Jamaica’s anti-doping disciplinary panel has been sent on a leave of absence following his arrest last month.

Lennox Gayle was arrested in mid-April after a raid at a massage parlour in the northern tourist town of Montego Bay.

Investigators with the police organised crime division claimed he owns the parlour and that prostitution took place there. Seven women were arrested on prostitution charges following the raid.

Gayle is the vice-chairman of the anti-doping disciplinary panel. A statement from the prime minister’s office said Gayle would not be assigned to any hearing panel pending the conclusion of his court case.

He led the three-member panel that recently banned Olympic sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson for 18 months after they tested positive for a banned stimulant at the National Trials last June.
