During his Press Conference, FIDE Presidential Candidate, Garry Kasparov asked who paid for the trips of Geoffrey Borg and Ali Yazici. FIDE only pays Mr. Borg's expenses when they specifically relate to FIDE business, such as SportAccord. FIDE pays Mr. Yazici's expenses relating to his work as Chairman of the Chess in Schools Commission and his work for the FIDE Playzone. FIDE also reserves the right to respond when its staff are falsely accused.
