Russian Paralympic Committee to appeal its IPC membership suspension

468

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has received official notification of an appeal from the Russian Paralympic Committee regarding the suspension of its IPC membership.

Following an agreement between the two parties, the appeal will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sunday, 21 August and a final decision will be announced by CAS by midnight CEST on Monday, 22 August.

The IPC suspended the Russian Paralympic Committee on Sunday, 7 August due to its inability to fulfil its IPC membership responsibilities and obligations, in particular its obligation to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code (to which it is also a signatory).
