In Brief

LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND: The International Olympic Committee is expected to hire former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger as an 'honor member' this week. Kissinger is one of several world business and political leaders who will be invited to serve in the new role, which will allow members to speak and attend meetings but not vote. In December Kissinger was part of a commission that was responsible for reforming the IOC after it was caught accepting gifts. Last year he told the IOC, whose reputation has been tainted ever since, that without reforms it will face a 'crisis of public confidence.'
