Chess News from Dimitrije Bjelica

I just received an interesting news item from that infamous International Chess Journalist, Dimitrije Bjelica.

He reports that Karpov has successfully sued the Yugoslav newspaper "Politika" because it repeatedly referred to Karpov in newspaper articles as "ex-World Chess Champion".

Karpov brought a certificate signed by Kirsan Ilyumzhinov stating that he was the World Chess Champion, not the former World Chess Champion.

For this, the newspaper Politika will have to pay Karpov ten thousand dollars.

Meanwhile, the other newspaper, Express Politika, has repeated a well-known rumor about Karpov which I will not repeat here.
