World Chess Champ Topalov "Fraudster"

Sports: 11 November 2005, Friday.
An unnamed participant in the World Chess Championship in San Luis, Argentina, has accused Chess King Bulgarian Vesselin Topalov of using unallowed measures to win the title, index.hu reported.
The site reports that after each move of Topalov, Cheparinov has used computer analysis of the game and has then secretly signaled the chess king for the next move. Peter Leko has also voiced his suspicions that Topalov has used unfair advantage by sitting on the same place during the entire championship. FIDE however, has not undertaken any measures due to lack of evidence.

I understand this issue is an allegation, not a proven fact. And since nothing has been proved, to everybody Vesselin Topalov is the world champion.
