Emirati Mohammed Al Kamali becomes arbitrator at Court of Arbitration for Sport

DUBAI, 10th October 2015 (WAM) — Mohammed Al Kamali, Secretary General of the National Olympic Committee, was recently appointed as a member of the Council of Arbitration of Sport (CAS).
The CAS is composed of 20 board members, who are experienced jurists in their own right.
Al Kamali’s appointment came during the CAS meetings which began last Thursday in Evian, France.
The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) is an independent institution established in 1984 under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to provide dispute settlement through mediation or arbitration for any sports-related disputes.
The Statutes of Bodies Working for the Settlement of Sports-Related Disputes foresees two bodies in Article S1, the International Council of Arbitration for Sports (ICAS) and the CAS – both seated in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The CAS is administered and financed by the ICAS.
The creation of the ICAS and the new structure of the CAS were approved in Paris, on 22 June 1994, with the signing of the “Agreement concerning the constitution of the International Council of Arbitration for Sport”, known as the “Paris Agreement”.
