Lawyer Saud Al-Rumman described Al-Hilal’s statement regarding his appeal against the decisions of the Dispute Resolution Chamber regarding the case of his midfield player, Muhammad Kanoo, who is disputed with Al-Nasr, as legally weak, and he refuted what was stated in it and responded to it with complete clarity.
Al-Hilal yesterday officially announced that it had filed an appeal with the Saudi Sports Arbitration Center against the decisions of the Dispute Resolution Chamber of the Saudi Football Association, and described in his statement those decisions as unfair.
The Kanno case exploded last January after Al Hilal announced the renewal of his contract for the next 3 seasons, after which Al Nasr issued a statement announcing the player’s signature. All parties submitted a complaint to the Saudi Football Association with its various committees, which issued its decisions a few days ago on the case.
What was stated in Al Hilal’s statement regarding his appeal against the decisions of the Kno case?
Dispute resolution obligated Kno and Al-Hilal in solidarity to pay a compensation of 27 million Saudi riyals to Al-Nassr. It also suspended the player for 4 months, and he has already missed the team’s last two matches in the Saudi League, and also suspended the club from registering new players for two transfer periods.
Al-Hilal, during an official statement, described those decisions as unfair and strongly attacked the timing of their issuance, noting that choosing the Eid al-Fitr holiday to announce the resolution of disputes for penalties deprived the club and the player from taking the necessary measures, as well as delaying them from submitting an appeal to the Sports Arbitration Center.
Al-Hilal stressed that the decisions of the Dispute Resolution Chamber are right in many points that will be detailed in the appeal memorandum, and the club gave an example in its statement that officials in “disputes” ignore the most important principles of the judiciary, which is that the burden of proof falls on the plaintiff, explaining that victory was not asked to prove a charge Incitement to the crescent.
Al-Hilal indicated that the decision to prevent him from registering and suspending Kno has no legal basis for the player not entering the protected period, since it begins after the contract’s entry into force, noting that in the disputed contract it begins on July 1, 2022 and not before that.
The Blue Club concluded by emphasizing its confidence that the Sports Arbitration Center will reverse the “surprising” decision to resolve disputes, noting that the Board of Directors will never fail to preserve the club’s rights.
What did the lawyer, Saud Al-Rumman, say about Al-Hilal’s statement?
The lawyer in charge of sports issues began his speech to Al-Hassad Sports Program by describing the statement as being less than expected from a legal point of view, pointing out that the suspension of Al-Hilal and Kanu by the Dispute Resolution Chamber fully complies with the regulations and not as stated in the club’s statement.
He added, “I expected that Al Hilal would deny the accusation of incitement to the player, but instead, the plaintiff (Al Nasr) demanded to prove the accusation of incitement against him, and this is in violation of Article 43 Paragraph 5 of the Regulations, which stated a text that the new club is considered an instigator unless proven otherwise, and based on that Al Hilal He is required to prove that he is not an instigator.”
He continued, “The third point is that Al Hilal acknowledged and acknowledged in his statement that he signed a second contract with Kno after his signing with Al-Nasr, but he indicated that he did so outside the protected period that begins on July 1, but all the International Federation, the International Regulations, the Interpretive Regulations and the El Kass Court were clear in More than one case and proved that the protected period starts from the moment of signing and not the date of entry into force of the contract, and therefore, from my point of view, Al Hilal’s statement came less than expected.”
It is noteworthy that some sources indicated that the final decision of the Sports Arbitration Center in the Kno case will not be before at least two months.
