The International Boxing Association (AIBA) have confirmed the suspension, as of March 8, of the Romanian Boxing Federation in a decision made by the AIBA Executive Committee Bureau, with the case submitted to the AIBA Disciplinary Commission for review.
AIBA had been informed that the Romanian Boxing Federation would hold an election, which subsequently failed to take place, for its Presidency on October 27, 2010, in order to elect a new President to replace the suspended President, Rudel Obreja.
On December 2, 2010, AIBA granted the Romanian Boxing Federation two additional months to organize an election but until now Mr Obreja continues to act as President of the Romanian Boxing Federation despite his current long suspension.
The AIBA Executive Committee Bureau has therefore provisionally fully suspended the Romanian Boxing Federation, meaning that no boxers, coaches or any officials are authorized to take part in any AIBA approved or controlled events and/or meetings.
Additionally, the Romanian Boxing Federation is not authorized to host any continental or international boxing events until an election for Presidency takes place and a decision by the AIBA Disciplinary Commission is made.
