On August 2016 the EBL announced the Decison issued by the Disciplinary Commission in the case of Fantoni and Nunes: “The Disciplinary Commission of the EBL has concluded that Fulvio Fantoni and Claudio Nunes have been guilty of infractions of the laws of bridge. Accordingly, they have been banned from playing together for life, and are separately prohibited from playing in any EBL events or activities for a period of 5 years. Additionally, the costs of the investigation and hearing have been awarded against them.”

Today, January 10, 2018, CAS announced their decision: The EBL Decison has been invalidated.
Mr Aubry, EBL President, confirms that an official statement will be posted in a few hours.
