Authority urges settling sports disputes internally
The Public Authority for Sports (PAS) called on national sports authorities to resort to the judicial authority or the circuit tasked of disputes in the sector for tackling differences. PAS said in a statement yesterday that the State rules do not bar referral to the judicial authorities, or the Olympic committee, the sports unions or the cup tribunal. The dispute cases should be referred to the competent authorities at the national level, instead of seeking justice from “organizations outside the country.” It expressed gratitude to the Minister of Justice and the Higher Judicial Council for establishing the sports court in the country. It also thanked the political leaders for their limitless support for the Kuwaiti sports’ independence.
