Qatar: Sports figures win reprieves
Saoud Al-Mohannadi has had sanctions imposed on him by football governing body Fifa lifted, following a successful appeal. He was banned from football for a year in November, for failing to cooperate with a Fifa enquiry (GSN 1,023/5). In a separate move, on 13 April, the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) said it had lifted its suspension on the Doping Analysis Laboratory in Doha imposed on 7 November due to “non-conformities”.
