London 2012 Olympics Ethics Commissioner quits

Jan 26, 2012 08:39 AM IST India India

New Delhi: A top London Olympics official has quit over the Dow sponsorship row. Ethics Commissioner Meredith Alexander put in her papers in protest of the sponsorship deal with Dow Chemicals because of its connection to the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy.

Alexander was appointed by London mayor Boris Johnson to serve on the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012.

Dow is due to provide a plastic wrap that will encircle the London 2012 Olympic Stadium during the Games.
