Dear Leila

FLUKA was developed under the supervision and oversight of A. Fasso’,
A.Ferrari, J. Ranft and P. Sala (The Authors) within an INFN-CERN
project up to the version dated June 15th 2019.

Subsequent so-called “FLUKA” CERN versions have beenreleased without the
prior consent/oversight/scientific control of the legitimate Authors of
the FLUKA software code.

This violation of moral authorship rights is compounded by CERN's
refusal to enter into the arbitration proceedings foreseen by the
Protocol on the Privileges and Immunities of CERN and referred to in
thespecific Agreement about FLUKA which was submitted to the prior
consent of the Authors.

The FLUKA Authors wish to make clear that the Authors recognise as FLUKA
/*only*/ the code distributed by INFN (the Italian Institute for Nuclear
and Particle Physics, which is continuously
developed and maintained by the same researchers who have developed
almost entirelytheFLUKA interaction models up to now.
