Georgios Makropoulos, the President of the Greek Chess Federation, sent an open letter to the editor-in-chief of Chess-News saying that the information published by the wbesite  under the title "Georgios Makropoulos has been sending letters to the players of Negroponte 2012 advising them not to participate in it" is not only "false and a complete lie but also malicious and libel." "I never sent any such letter", - Mr. Makropoulos underlines.

Georgios Makropoulos also responded to the letter of the organizer of the competition Anna Pavlidou, in which she was accusing GCF in cancellation of the competition:

"The board of the Greek Chess Federation (GCF), contrary to what Ms Pavlidou claims, had decided to help the Negroponte tournament with electronic chess boards and clocks in the same meeting where it was decided to ask Greek organisers not to accept the banned Turkish player Suat Atalik. After the announcement of Ms Pavlidou that finally she adopts the decision of the GCF, it is obvious that there would have been no problem with the Negroponte tournament. Unfortunately, the real problem of the Negroponte organisers were neither the Greek Chess Federation nor Suat Atalik.
