Tue, 14 Jun 2022

Kawsar Zaman has defended a Registrant of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) in proceedings before the National Safeguarding Panel of Sports Resolutions brought pursuant to its 2021 Procedural Rules.

The Arbitration determined whether the Registrant:

  • engaged in conduct that directly and/or indirectly harmed the welfare of an Adult at Risk, contrary to section 4.1(i) of the BHA’s Safeguarding Regulations; and
  • whether the Registrant posed a risk of harm to Young Persons or Adults at Risk, contrary to section 4.1(ii) of the BHA’s Safeguarding Regulations.

The allegations were presided over by a three-member Arbitral Tribunal.

Kawsar advised the Registrant before the hearing and acted in the two-day final hearing held at the International Dispute Resolution Centre in Holborn, London.

The BHA were represented by Kate Gallafent QC of Blackstone Chambers.

In separate news, Kawsar has been appointed a director of the Wembley National Stadium Trust, a charitable grant-making trust, distributing funding received from Wembley Stadium to support community sports activities.  He is also a legal adviser to Nujum Sports.
