AIBA Disciplinary Commission opens further proceedings on Mr Kucinoglu27 June 2014
On March 20, 2014 the AIBA Disciplinary Commission sanctioned former Vice President and Treasurer of the Polish Boxing Association, Mr Mustafa Kucinoglu, with a lifetime ban after he stabbed Polish R&J Mr Zbigniew Zagrodnik last February.
However, as Mr Kucinoglu did not have a chance to take advantage of his right to be heard due to being in prison for over 3 months, he has claimed to have a possibility to defend himself. Accordingly, after his provisional release from prison in May 2014, he has applied for interim measures with the District Court of Lausanne, which recently ordered AIBA to provisionally lift the disciplinary sanctions imposed on him by its Disciplinary Commission in March 2014.
Following the recent order, the AIBA Disciplinary Commission has decided to reconsider its decision in accordance with AIBA regulations and has provided Mr Mustafa Kucinoglu with the opportunity to make his submissions in respect of the charges.
A new decision will be issued shortly.
