IOC suspension of Kuwait’s sports activities is temporary


The International Olympic Committee (IOC) yesterday officially suspended Kuwait’s sports activities for violating international regulations, but a senior Kuwaiti official affirmed that the IOC suspension is tentative and will be scrapped once amendments of the local Sports Law are finalized. “The Public Authority of Youth and Sport (PAYS) Friday received a letter from the International Olympic Committee, in which it informs PAYS of suspending activities of the Kuwaiti Olympic Committee,” PAYS Chairman Faisal Al-Jazzaf said.

He said that the letter clarified that the suspension is “temporary” and would be lifted as soon as Kuwaiti sports laws are amended and dovetailed with the Olympic Charter. Kuwait Times
