Caster: KZN law society has its say

2009-09-30 00:00

THE KwaZulu-Natal Law Society has added its voice to the storm of protest at the handling of the Caster Semenya affair.

President of the society, Eric Barry, said in a statement the KZN Law Society recorded its “grave concern” at the manner in which the athlete’s rights were infringed.

Barry urged the Sport Department to conduct a proper inquiry into the conduct of ASA South Africa and certain officials including its CEO.

The international sporting community should review its regulatory structures to ensure there was “proper alignment between the governance of sport and respect for the dignity of all human beings, a principle for which Caster Semenya has already paid so dearly,” said Barry.
