AR suspends SLR President


In line with Asia Rugby principles of Equality, Transparency and Accountability, due to investigations into a potential breach of Asia Rugby’s Code of Conduct by SLR President Rizly Illyas, Asia Rugby Executive Committee has approved the suspension of Illyas from any rugby duties, activities and responsibilities within the jurisdiction of Asia Rugby until the pending investigation is concluded. 

Meanwhile, SLR is currently facing full membership suspension from Asia Rugby (AR), which was imposed recently.

An Asia Rugby delegate was in Sri Lanka from 20 to 24 April and met relevant stakeholders – Sri Lanka Ministry of Youth and Sport, Sri Lanka National Olympic Committee, various Club representatives and the Rugby Referees Association – and a consensus was reached by all stakeholders that a fresh election is a necessity.
