Former world champion sprinter Frankie Fredericks has been provisionally suspended from his role in athletics pending an ethics investigation, the IAAF said on Monday.

The Namibian is being investigated by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) over payments he received from Papa Massata Diack, the son of ex-IAAF President Lamine Diack.

Earlier this year Fredericks, an International Olympic Committee member, stepped down as head of the team evaluating bids to host the 2024 Olympics and has also removed himself from the IAAF taskforce investigating doping allegations in Russian Federation after the corruption allegations surfaced in Le Monde newspaper. Both Diacks are implicated by French prosecutors in a corruption case that includes extorting money from athletes to cover up doping.

Kushner, Senior Advisor to the President, updated his security clearance form on June 21, 2017 to include the meeting. Akhmetshin is a Russian-American who is a former member of the Russian military intelligence unit, known as GRU.

"His suggestion that his participation in IAAF Council business should be a matter of his own discretion on a meeting by meeting and issue by issue basis is, in the Integrity Unit's view, inadequate in the light of the seriousness of the matters, the subject of investigation, and the importance of ensuring and being seen to ensure the utmost standards of probity in the administration of the sport", it said.

Despite the suspension, the AIU said Fredericks would retain "the presumption of innocence until the conclusion of that investigative process".

"I am not prepared to voluntarily consent not to undertake my duties in respect of the position I hold as IAAF Council Member", Fredericks said in a statement on June 2, according to documents made available by the IAAF.
