My thread on the interim decision of the Swiss Federal Tribunal in the @caster800m case.

Full decision in French at bger.ch/ext/eurospider…

It highlights key features of the #LexSportiva & the ‘complicity’ of Swiss law in sheltering it from review.

1. The #SFT reminds us that its control of #CAS awards is narrow. Hence, it orders interim measures only if it is ‘very likely’ that an appellant will prevail.

This is because Swiss law is traditionally favourable to international arbitration.

2. This is extremely problematic because #CAS arbitration unlike international arbitration is in general not based in consent (see ECtHR in #Pechstein) and should not enjoy the same quasi-immunity from state control.

At the request of my new [South-African, obviously] colleague @MPlagis, I swallowed the 163 pages of the #Semenya award yesterday.

It wasn’t the most pleasant literary experience of my life, but at least I learned what a judicial ‘hot tub’ is.

Here is a book review:

1. In short, what is interesting in the award is actually also what the #CAS forgot to mentioned in its press release, the core of #IAAF’s winning case turns on the concepts of ‘biological males’ & ‘sports sex’.

2. But let me start by regretting that the #CAS hearing was not public because @caster800m’s testimony (see paras 73-87) recalling what she went through since 2009 would have deserved a global audience.

Ieri un uomo di 33 anni, afgano, si è tolto la vita all'interno dell'ex caserma #Cavarzerani di #Udine. A un giorno di distanza non conosciamo ancora il suo nome, anche da morto non gli è permesso avere dignità e rispetto; la sua morte non fa notizia.
Qua un nostro commento su questa morte, su #Majid, su #Gradisca.
