The Intercontinental Boxing Association’s (AIBA) Taiwanese president Ching-kuo Wu has been provisionally suspended by a disciplinary fee, the Olympic sport’s governing overall body said in a assertion on Tuesday.
The Swiss-based mostly organisation has been riven with in-fighting for months, with Wu pitted against most of the executive committee who failed to eliminate him as a result of a vote of no self-assurance tabled in July.
AIBA said on their internet site (www.aiba.org) that the 70-year-aged was served on Monday with a provisional and immediate suspension from responsibilities pending the summary of a grievance against him.
It said the grievance was manufactured by 11 AIBA executive committee associates on Oct. 1 who alleged that Wu had “violated and continues to violate many provisions of AIBA’s Statutes and Codes” and demanded his suspension.
“The Chairman of the Fee and the Fee panel assigned to this make any difference believe that that the problem is urgent and call for immediate provisional actions be ordered,” the assertion included.
There was no immediate comment from Wu and AIBA officials, such as executive director William Louis-Marie, who did not reply to telephone and electronic mail approaches by Reuters.
Wu, who was elected AIBA president in 2006 and is a member of the Intercontinental Olympic Committee’s executive board, has rejected promises of fiscal mismanagement and accused opponents of “political manoeuvrings” as section of a energy battle.
