Lausanne, Switzerland, June 7, 2019 – The FIVB Disciplinary Panel Sub-Committee has ruled that Polish national team player, Mr. Michal Kubiak, committed violations of the FIVB Disciplinary Regulations based on his public statements made about Iran during an interview on 26 May 2019.
The FIVB Disciplinary Panel Sub-Committee accepted the sanction imposed on Mr. Kubiak by the Disciplinary Department of the Polish Volleyball Federation of a reprimand and six-match sanction, to be served during Week 3 and 4 of the VNL 2019, which it found to be in line with the FIVB Disciplinary Regulations.
Additionally, the FIVB Disciplinary Sub-Committee strongly recommended that the Polish Volleyball Federation require Mr. Kubiak to issue a written apology, which should be read by the announcer during the match between Poland and Iran during Week 3 of the Volleyball Nations League.
The FIVB Disciplinary Panel Sub-Committee noted that the decision of the Disciplinary Department of the Polish Volleyball Federation was subject to appeal and reserved the right to re-open the proceedings if Mr. Kubiak files an appeal of that decision or failed to serve his sanction.
