The Japanese Olympic Committee has drafted a measure to withhold funding for the All Japan Judo Federation for fiscal year 2013 over athlete abuses and will discuss the matter at a meeting of its executives on Tuesday, a source familiar with the situation said Thursday.

A JOC executive said the drafted measure is the “harshest ever.” The committee is said to be considering options that will not affect the judo federation’s athlete development program.
