OFFICIAL STATEMENT: The Disciplinary commission of the VELUX EHF FINAL4 suspended the Croatian line player of Paris for one game following his semi-final unsportsmanlike conduct.
Vori to miss the third place match
The Disciplinary Commission at the VELUX EHF FINAL4 2016 in the composition of Jörgen Holmqvist/SWE, Martin Hausleitner/AUT and Dragan Nachevski/MKD dealt with the case of a direct red card shown to the Paris line player Igor Vori in the semi-final aganist Vive Tauron Kielce.
Igor Vori (9/Paris Saint-Germain) was directly disqualified by the referees at min. 58:58 for elbowing an opponent in the face.
The Disciplinary Commission considers the action to be an unsportsmanlike act. It is regarded by the panel as reckless/aggressive/dangerous act for the opponent player’s health and therefore the commission finds that such action deserves further sanctions.
In light of the foregoing and pursuant to article B.1 of the EHF List of Penalties, the Disciplinary Commission decides to impose one match suspension on Vori and the player is therefore not eligible to play the the third place match at the VELUX EHF FINAL4 on Sunday against THW Kiel.
Any appeal against this decision shall not have any suspensive effects.
Indeed, taking into consideration the window frame remaining until the next match of the competition as well as the nature of the conduct and in order to ensure the superior interest of the competition, as well as its balance and fairness, the Disciplinary Commission hereby decides that any appeal against the present sanction shall not have any suspensive effect.
