The heat on Maurice just got turned up a notch. Emanuel Hudson at HSI declined to talk.
“We would like to hear his explanation,” the I.A.A.F. spokesman Nick Davies wrote in an e-mail message Wednesday.
The Times described the informant’s charges and what the informant said was a $10,000 wire transfer from Greene to the informant. The Daily Telegraph later quoted Greene as saying that he had met the informant, but did not obtain or use any drugs from him. Greene said he bought “stuff” for his track club teammates. “Our group was very close and things always came up,” Greene told the newspaper. “I would pay for stuff and not care what it was. I’ve paid for things for other people.”
In the e-mail message Wednesday to The Times, Davies wrote: “We have asked Maurice Greene for a written reaction to the entire article, including comments he is quoted as making, but have not received his reply yet.”
Davies said he made the request for explanations directly to Greene’s agent, Emanuel Hudson of HSInternational in Irvine, Calif. Hudson declined to talk about that request, or about Greene’s response.
