MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. The Russian Paralympic Committee’s (RPC) appeal against suspension of membership in the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) will be considered in Switzerland’s federal court within 6-7 months, the RPC said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The RPC’s main appeal will be considered in the federal court of Switzerland within 6-7 months. It depends on this decision whether the Russian Paralympians will be able to take part in other international competitions, in particular, the 2018 Paralympic Games," the statement said.
The Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland has ruled against an appeal from Russia on the suspension of national Paralympians from the 2016 Summer Games, according to a statement from the court.
Artyom Patsev, a Russian sports lawyer, told TASS commenting on the court’s decision that is was predictable and it was senseless for Russia to file an appeal.
"It was immediately clear that they would reject the appeal, which was senseless," Patsev said in an interview with TASS. "I said it earlier that it was all very predictable."
