During this competition, Manuel Torres was judging and gave an easy fake 2x2 scramble to a fellow competitor. The solve was done in a very fast time and then found soon afterwards to be a mis-scramble. An extra solve was given to replace this. The judge did not admit that he was to blame and that it was an intentional mis-scramble until the day after the competition. Manuel has been co-operative and remorseful, and has been given a 3 month ban from WCA competitions to reflect the disruption he caused to the competitor and the competition generally.
Thank you to those who have helped with this investigation.
