Suspension of the Kuwait Olympic Committee

The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee suspended the Kuwait Olympic Committee to protect the Olympic Movement in Kuwait from undue Government interference.

The Olympic Movement in Kuwait has faced a number of issues to preserve its autonomy, in particular due to recently amended sports legislation in Kuwait. The IOC, in close collaboration the International Federations concerned, has done everything possible to resolve the situation amicably and in the interest of the Olympic Movement in Kuwait.

A deadline of 27 October 2015 was set to resolve the issues at hand or, at least, freeze the application of the conflictive provisions of the sports legislation until a reasonable and mutually acceptable solution could be found. That deadline expired with no action having been taken by the Government of Kuwait.
