“I don’t think you can move ahead with a prosecution on a player given this set of facts,” Finchem said. “That’s our conclusion. Vijay wasn’t assessed this action because he was negligent. He wasn’t assessed it because he made a mistake. He was assessed it because he violated the doping code, and the doping code is predicated on a list of substances. And we’re now finding from WADA that that substance doesn’t trigger a positive test to admission, so we have to respect that.”

Finchem declined to say what kind of suspension Singh had faced.
