Sebastian Feller's ban, imposed after his use of computer assistance during the 2010 Olympiad in Khanty-Mansiysk had been revealed, has now ended. Feller may now again play in FIDE events, advises the FIDE website: "Following the expiration of the ban imposed by the Ethics Commission and the return of the Prize Fund and Gold Medal by GM Feller, FIDE confirms that GM Feller can now participate in FIDE rated events.".

We would remind you that the Ethics Commission took its decision in the Feller affair in August 2012. Feller himself was banned for two years, nine months (starting from 1 August 2012), his assistant Arnaud Hauchard for three years and another assistant, Cyril Marcolo, received the shortest ban, which expired long ago. All the three were found guilty of breaking point 2.2.5 of the FIDE Ethics rules.
