On April 16, 2020 the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne (Switzerland) has changed the decision of the RUSADA Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee (hereinafter-DAC) related to the coach of the athlete Yulia Malueva Andrey Eremenko (athletics), accused of attempting to bribe a RUSADA doping control officer while performing a mission during the Russian track and field relay Championship in Sochi in 2017.
The sole arbitrator, after reviewing the circumstances of the case and hearing the positions of the parties, decided that there was no reasonable doubt that the defendant attempted to bribe the DCO on 2 September 2017 to prevent the collection of a genuine urine sample from the athlete, thereby demonstrating his complicity in the fact that the athlete Yulia Malueva avoided passing an anti-doping test at the competition.
Andrey Valeryevich Eremenko committed an anti-doping rule violation and is subject to a four (4) year period of Ineligibility, starting from the date of this decision - April 16, 2020.
During the Russian track and field relay Championships, held in September 2017 in Adler, the athlete Yulia Malueva tried to evade doping control by simulating ill health during the sample delivery. The coach of the athlete Eremenko at the same time intended to bribe the RUSADA doping control officer for not recording the incident. The Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee in December 2018 took Eremenko's side - that is, it found him not to have violated clause 2.5 Falsification and clause 2.9 Complicity, after which RUSADA filed an appeal to the CAS. Eremenko's hearing in the Court of Arbitration for Sport took place on December 3, 2019.
Athlete Malueva, who acted as a witness in the case of Eremenko, was previously disqualified by the Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee for 4 years until April 11, 2022.
Complete solution is attached.
