About touch free systems and punching trainings

Mess with control order at last women leg during Tiomila 2014 (Updated)

Usually Tiomila level of organiztion is perfect. But this year I have to report about one big fault. Order of controls at the end of last women leg was 21-23-22-24. What is correct way to react for such situation??? Rules tell "Competitors who visit controls in the wrong order shall be disqualified". In my opinion correct order means 1-2-3-4-..-21-22-23-24. And this happens at the cricual moment of women relay.
