ICAS DECLARATION OF SUPPORT FOR CAS ARBITRATOR
Lausanne, 8 July 2022 – The International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS) has learned that Prof. Aliaksandr Danilevich, PhD in Law, a successful Belarusian lawyer and a Member of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), was arrested on 20 May 2022 by the Belarusian police. At the end of February 2022, he co-signed a statement calling for the immediate termination of the hostilities in Ukraine.
To the ICAS’s knowledge, the professional reputation of Prof. Danilevich, who was also a member of the Disciplinary Committee of Rugby Europe, has always been impeccable. Therefore, it is particularly hard to understand that pre-trial restrictions in the form of detention were immediately implemented after the investigation started. The ICAS expresses its most serious concerns with respect to Prof. Danilevich’s situation as a political prisoner. The ICAS very much hopes that he will be released soon in order to return to his legal practice and to pursue his missions with the CAS.
