Non-Games Fiasco

The Ratings Officer has now admitted:
It has been established that the games were not played.
The statement refers to 3 games that were reported as draws but were, in fact, agreements over the telephone. I had previously addressed the incident by asking "When is a draw not a draw?"

This stunning development and admission now means that the ratings for June 2005 are likely to be reran. But what about the FIDE report already submitted? Will that also be withdrawn?
