FAF: Will Bahloul and Aissaoui be rehabilitated by the Algerian CAS?

Suspended as a precaution by Charaf-Eddine Amara until their hearing by the FAF ethics commission for having violated the right of reserve, Amar Bahloul and Mouldi Aissaoui seized the Algerian CAS a few weeks ago. The hearing took place today, in the absence of the FAF lawyer, where the jurisdictional structure finally decided to defer its decision. Both men could well benefit from rehabilitation.

After the elimination of the national team from the next World Cup, after losing the return match of the play-offs against Cameroon (1-2) on March 29 in Blida, the two former members of the federal office Amar Bahloul and Mouldi Aissaoui did not hesitate to openly criticize the president of the Algerian football federation Charaf-Eddine Amara in statements to the media. The latter decided to suspend them as a precaution for having violated the right of reserve, in accordance with the statutes of the FAF.

Mouldi Aissaoui and Amara Bahloul, meanwhile, seized the Algerian sports arbitration court located in Ben aknoun, considering that their suspension is “anti-regulatory” because it was taken by a resigning president. An argument that holds water since the measure came from a president who should no longer be in office. The hearing took place today in the absence of the FAF lawyer. The Algerian CAS finally decided to postpone the case and thus postpone the verdict to a later date, we learned from our colleagues from “La Gazette du Fennec”.

Bahloul and Aissaoui could benefit from rehabilitation

Still according to the same source, and pending the hearing scheduled by the Algerian CAS, the two former members of the federal bureau Amar Bahloul and Mouldi Aissaoui could finally benefit from rehabilitation from the jurisdictional structure in question, adds the same source. In this case, and while Amar Bahloul has officially resigned from the BF for combining functions, Mouldi Aissaoui could therefore still be part of it.

What still opens the doors to speculation as to a possible rehabilitation of the two men, it is quite simply the intention of Amar Bahloul to stand as a candidate for the presidency of the Algerian football federation at the next elective general assembly which will take place take place next July. The possibility of seeing him succeed the CEO of the Madar Holding group cannot be ruled out.
