SOCHI, Russia (AP) — The International Olympic Committee has dismissed concerns over Russia’s law banning gay propaganda. The chairman of the IOC Coordination Commission, Jean-Claude Killy (zhawn klawd KEE’-lee), said the IOC doesn’t have the right to discuss the laws that are in place in the country hosting the games, “so unless the (Olympic) charter is violated we are fully satisfied.”
Russia has come under scrutiny as the next host of the Olympics because of the law passed this summer outlawing “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors,” which many worry may apply to gay athletes and visitors to the games.
