the jury member Mr. Shkludov acted in an unacceptable way and frustrated the process of cooperation inside the jury, with the contact Mr. Céron and with the CPI /FMJD.
Those who read Mr. Shkludov on http://shashki.com
are well aware of his style, of throwing insults, mindless accusations, stubbornness and hostility.
Apparently he is a very good judge of compositions, tireless and knowledgable. At the same time he wants to inflict on others his own vision of the rules and procedures - and he is doing this in his own scandalous way.
Mr. Hildering quotes FMJD rule that "participants have the benefit of the doubt". That means that no single judge prevails - all must agree. The tournament is for the participants and not for judges to star. But Mr. Shkludov insists and persists that only his judgement should prevail and he would rather let the tournament perish than to comply.
I've read Mr. Hildering's appeals to Mr. Shkludov to come back and finish the job, not to let the participants down. I also read Mr. Shkludov's replies, most of it insinuations, insults and demands for others to step down. This is not productive and I am glad to read that Belorussia on its own recalled Mr. Shkludov and offered another person instead.
