IOC mem­ber Wu sus­pended

The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

Lau­sanne, Switzer­land — IOC ex­ec­u­tive board mem­ber C. K. Wu has been sus­pended as pres­i­dent of Olympic boxing’s gov­ern­ing body while a com­plaint against him is in­ves­ti­gated.

The In­ter­na­tional Boxing As­so­ci­a­tion says its dis­ci­plinary panel judged a com­plaint by 11 se­nior of­fi­cials to be ur­gent and re­quir­ing “im­me­di­ate pro­vi­sional mea­sures.”

AIBA ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­bers, who passed a no­con­fi­dence vote against Wu in July, claim he “con­tin­u­ously ex­er­cises such rights to dis­miss and ap­point key in­di­vid­u­als” to main­tain con­trol.

The lat­est tur­moil fol­lows claims that Wu failed to in­form col­leagues of AIBA’s al­legedly trou­bled fi­nances. – AP
