At the request of the management of the Sierra Leone team, the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Corporation has withdrawn accreditation from 14 Sierra Leone athletes officially described as missing by Victoria police.

 

Melbourne 2006 understands that the loss of accreditation means that visas issued to the athletes by the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs will cease from midnight tonight.
