Balicki-Żmudziński Case: EBL’s Reply to PBU

Posted on 11 October 2016

ebl bannerToday EBL President, Mr Yves Aubry, has sent an official answer to PBU President, Mr Witold Stachnik:

Dear President, dear Witold,

I refer to your letter dated 7th October relating to the Polish players Cezary Balicki and Adam Zmudzinski, whose case is currently pending with the EBL Disciplinary Commission.

I received the conclusions of the EBL Investigating Committee on the 27th May 2016 and decided to refer the case for adjudication to the EBL Disciplinary Commission.

At that time the EBL Disciplinary Commission was chaired by Jurica Carić who was also serving as EBL Executive Committee Member pursuant to the EBL Statutes.

On the 24th June 2016, the EBL Extraordinary General Assembly validated the modifications of the EBL Statutes. From that date, no Member of the EBL Executive Committee could be a Member of the EBL Disciplinary Commission.

The Balicki-Zmudzinski procedure had begun before the vote on the new Statutes and so a problem arose on the composition of the EBL Disciplinary Commission in charge of the case.

I have sought legal advice on the issue, following which, in order to avoid any difficulties, I decided to ask to Jurica Carić to resign from the Disciplinary Commission.

During the last meeting held in Wroclaw, on my proposal, the EBL Executive Committee Members, nominated a new Disciplinary Commission with Gabor Winkler (President), Rex Anderson and P.O. Sundelin as Members.
This new Disciplinary Commission will now deal with the case of the Polish players BalickiZmudzinski.

The modifications made with the implementation of the new Statutes have led to some delays, but I have no doubt that the EBL Disciplinary Commission will move forward in its work on this case very soon.

Yours sincerely,
Yves Aubry
