** AMENDED**


The Badminton World Federation (BWF) confirms the appeals to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) by Mr. Zulfadli Zulkiffli (MAS) and Mr. Tan Chun Seang (MAS) against the decision of the BWF Ethics Hearing Panel in April 2018 have both been dismissed.

The Ethics Hearing Panel rendered its decision on 27 April 2018 (linked here) banning Zulkiffli from competitive events and performing any role in badminton for 20 years, ordering him to pay a fine of USD$25,000, while Tan received a 15-year ban and a fine of USD$15,000.

The BWF is satisfied that CAS has come to the same conclusions as the independent Ethics Hearing Panel in rendering its decision on the appeal.
