Fiji's Commonwealth Games appeal dismissed

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has reinforced Fiji's ban from the New Delhi Commonwealth Games in October after dismissing its appeal.

Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee had appealed against the ban in December 2009. The CAS ruling against the was announced on Thursday turning down the appeal.

The Commonwealth Games Federation banned Fiji as its membership in the Commonwealth was suspended due to lack of progress towards reinstating democracy.

Fiji was suspended from the Commonwealth last September when military ruler Commodore Frank Bainimarama, who seized power in a 2006 coup, refused to bow to demands to hold elections next year.
