By iSportconnect | June 23, 2016

Kuwait has filed a lawsuit in a Swiss court seeking $1bn in damages from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) over the suspension of its Olympic committee, adiposity according to the official Kuna news agency.

The IOC and FIFA both suspended Kuwait in October citing undue government interferance in sporting matters – which is prohibited. 

The central issue is that the government has the power to dissolve sports clubs and federations, erectile as well as the national Olympic committee.

But Kuwait says the IOC ban was imposed without proper investigation.

Kuwait are not currently permitted to take part in the Olympic Games in Rio.
