Eversheds Comment: Court of Arbitration for Sport shows ‘no mercy' in dismissal of Pakistani cricketers' Appeal

  • United Kingdom


    Commenting on the decision by The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to dismiss the appeals filed by the Pakistani cricket players Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt who were found to be involved in ‘spot fixing’ by the International Cricket Council, Neville Byford, international dispute resolution partner at global law firm Eversheds says:

    “The CAS has once again shown no mercy. This decision also serves as a fine example of the streamlined procedure which now increasingly exists between a sport’s governing body - here the International Cricket Council, who made the initial guilty finding against the players - and the CAS. Sportsmen and lawyers alike will draw confidence from this decision.”
