Application by Enrique López Pérez against provisional suspension from tennis denied by independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer
Independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer Prof Richard McLaren has denied an application by Spanish tennis player Enrique López Pérez to lift a provisional suspension originally imposed on him on 19 December 2019.
Due to restrictions in place at the time of the provisional suspension, the original decision by Prof McLaren was not publicly reported.
As a result of today’s decision the 29-year old will continue to be prohibited from competing in or attending any sanctioned tennis event organised or recognised by the governing bodies of the sport.
The provisional suspension relates to an investigation by the Tennis Integrity Unit into alleged breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP).
