CAS Revokes Mohamed Chibi’s Sanction and Affirms His Right to Seek Legal Action

Cairo, Egypt – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) issued a decision on Tuesday to annul the sanctions imposed by the Egyptian Football Federation (EFA) on Moroccan international player Mohamed Chibi, a Pyramids FC player.

The EFA had previously suspended Chibi for six matches and fined him 100,000 Egyptian pounds (approximately 2.1 million centimes) following a complaint he filed against Al Ahly player Hussein El Shahat after an altercation between them during an Egyptian league match last July. During that match between Pyramids and Al Ahly, El Shahat verbally and physically assaulted Chibi in front of the cameras.

By canceling the EFA’s decision, CAS has reaffirmed Mohamed Chibi’s right to resort to civil court to settle his dispute with Hussein El Shahat.

This CAS decision puts an end to a period of uncertainty for the Moroccan player and definitively closes this sensitive file, which had sparked strong reactions in the Egyptian and Moroccan football world.
