Dr. Nabil Elaraby, Chairman of CRCICA Board of Trustees and Secretary General of the League of Arab States, has been recently appointed as President of the Arbitration Division of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The Division oversees disputes arising from contracts and torts. Ms. Corinne Schmidhauser was appointed as President of the Arbitration Appeals Division.
Such appointments followed balloting which took place on the 22nd of May in Lausanne and resulted in the re-election of Mr. John Coates as President of both the Council and the Court for a second term lasting until 2018.
It is notable that Dr. Elaraby has been member of the Board of the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS) since 2003.
