Hours after the Indian Express distributed a report that Sjoerd Marijne, who had instructed the ladies’ hockey group at the Tokyo Olympics, is yet to be paid his last compensation by the Sports Authority of India and a monetary compensation guaranteed by UP, the game’s public body blamed the Dutchman for “information burglary” — and took steps to make a move against him for not returning a PC.
Reacting to the report, Hockey India said Marijne’s comments on his forthcoming compensation was a “malignant endeavor to portray Indian games organization” and asserted the mentor was owed “just an equilibrium measure of USD 1,800”.
“Because of the non-return of the PC, Hockey India can’t give a NOC and as such accepts that the Sports Authority of India is on solid ground to hold the USD 1800,” Hockey India said. “Marijne’s offered to discolor the Indian games organization for being approached to return the PC with the priceless information is a valid example.”
On Tuesday, without accusing any authority or organization, the previous India mentor had let The Indian Express know that he was at this point to accept his last compensation from the SAI and the Rs 25 lakh reward guaranteed by the UP government. He had said that he was “in steady touch” with those concerned and was “sure” that the issue “will be settled soon”.

We prescribe to make a vital correctional move against Marijne to work with the recuperation of the PC and the information it holds.”
Responding to the assertion, Marijne, who is in the Netherlands, let The Indian Express know that he has as of now started the most common way of sending back the PC, which had “slammed” in the Olympics.
“I carried it alongside me to get it fixed yet that didn’t occur. I’m returning the PC, I generally approve of that. I don’t have a clue why they responded this way yet I wish to clarify that I intended no irreverence to anybody. I partook in each second I spent in India and will consistently be associated with the country,” Marijne said.

SAI is answerable for utilizing mentors for the public groups across every single Olympic game.
Hockey India said they were “amazingly happy with the energetic promptness” with which SAI followed up on their recommendations and added they had “no real excuse to accept that any type of formality exists to hamper the development of Indian game which has truth be told acquired a vertical direction”.
