Yesterday, 6 February 2018, the decision was issued in the appeal filed by Mr Ilie Năstase against the sanctions imposed by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) as a consequence of the events which took place during the Fed Cup Tie held in Constanța from 20 to 23 April 2017.

Following the review of the case by an Independent Tribunal, both suspensions initially applied to Mr Năstase in July 2017 by the ITF’s Internal Adjudication Panel have been reduced as follows:

-    the ban from receiving access to, or otherwise accreditation for ITF competitions and circuits has been reduced to almost half of its initial length (from approx. 20 months to 12 months), now being due to expire on 23 April 2018 (approx. 2 and a half months from now);

-    the ban from acting in an official capacity (including, but not limited, to team Captain) in all ITF competitions has been reduced by approx. 8 months, being due to expire on 23 April 2020 (approx. 2 years from now).

Mr Năstase has also been fined a sum of USD 20,000.

The reasoning of the Independent Tribunal contains, among others, the following conclusions:

-    Mr Năstase’s conduct during the match between Sorana Cîrstea and Johanna Konta is the only breach that can be categorised as “serious offending”;
-    Mr Năstase’s conduct in relation to his interactions with the press was categorised “mid-range offending”, while his remarks towards Ms Serena Williams and Ms Anne Keothavong were categorised as “low-range offending”;
-    Mr Năstase is not a racist and it cannot be concluded that he intended to make a racist remark when commenting about Ms Williams’ child.

Moreover, the reasoning for the decision in the appeal of Mr Ilie Năstase makes clear that the suspensions imposed on him are limited only to ITF events. Please note that such events include Davis Cup and Fed Cup, but do not cover the individual men's and women's tennis competitions (the WTA and ATP tours).
The Appeal of Mr Năstase was settled by an Independent Tribunal, with an international membership, convened under the ITF Rules. The proceedings in this appeal lasted for approx. 6 months and included an oral hearing, held in December 2017 in London, in which Mr Ilie Năstase and witnesses for both parties were heard.

Peli Filip Law Firm legally assisted Mr Ilie Năstase in preparing his defence from the moment the investigation was initiated by the ITF. The team participating in this project, coordinated by Cristina Filip (partner), is comprised of the following attorneys: Mihnea Săraru (senior associate), Eliza Baias (senior associate), Ana Pantilica (associate) and Carina Vermeșan (associate).

During the appeal proceedings, Mr Năstase was represented by the same Peli Filip team in collaboration with Ms Jane Mulcahy (Queen’s Counsel) and Mr Tom Cleaver, barristers specialising in sport disputes from Blackstone Chambers.
