  • ANOC Statement: Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah


    ANOC can confirm that Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah has decided to temporarily suspend himself from his roles and responsibilities within ANOC on 28 November 2018, pending the legal hearings in Switzerland. Sheikh Ahmad has full trust in the Swiss legal system and is confident that he will be able to clarify his position in full before the competent Swiss Courts.

    ANOC notes Sheikh Ahmad has taken the decision based on what he believes to be in the best interests of the NOC family and Olympic Movement. It is important to reiterate that Sheikh Ahmad strenuously denies any wrongdoing in this legal case which he states is politically and maliciously motivated.
