International Olympic Committee member Alex Gilady said on Wednesday that he will ask the European Olympic Committees to reconsider its decision to hold its 41st General Assembly in Eilat this December after his fellow Committee member was delayed by Border Control at Ben-Gurion Airport on Tuesday.

Gilady arrived in Israel with International Triathlon Union President and IOC member Marisol Casado late Tuesday night, but while Gilady, Israel’s first and only IOC member, quickly passed through border control, Casado was held up for 47 minutes despite being taken to VIP Border Control.

Casado was deeply insulted by the treatment she was given and Gilady plans to approach the EOC and ask it to reconsider its decision to hold its assembly in Eilat.

Casado, who visited Jerusalem and the Dead Sea on Wednesday, is in Israel for the Triathlon European Championships, which will take place in Eilat this weekend.
