Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered an urgent appeal filed by Mr Serik Konakbayev (Kazakhstan), Vice President of the International Boxing Association (AIBA) and President of the Asian Boxing Confederation, against the decision taken by the AIBA Election Committee dated 1 October 2018 in which Serik Konakbayev’s name was not included on the list of candidates standing for election for the role of AIBA President which is scheduled to take place on 2-3 November 2018. Serik Konakbayev seeks a ruling from CAS ordering the inclusion of his name on the list of presidential candidates and ordering the publication by AIBA of the updated list on its website and the sending of such updated list by AIBA to all AIBA Member Associations.
In addition to his appeal, Serik Konakbayev filed a request for provisional measures requesting that his name be immediately included on the list of presidential candidates until CAS has renders its final decision. An arbitration procedure has been opened and a decision on the request for provisional measures will be issued in the coming days.
