Does MCF have the authority to hear PICA case?

I believe a sacked State Official that is elected have the right of appeal to the Federation, after exhausting all avenues in the State Association, in any proper structure.

However does MCF have the authority to rule on it? My understanding is that PICA just got approved as an affiliate of MCF under COS regulations. In this new structure MCF has disciplinary powers it didnt have before.

A ruling here will lend confidence to the sponsors and other State Officials that they can do the right thing and not fear unconstitutional and arbitrary action. This will be good for chess.
