The BIIU Provisional Appointment Group filed a complaint against Umar Kremlev based on Art. 25.1.11, 25.15 and 25.2 Convention and election regulations.

On September 22, 2022, after a thorough review of all available documents and information, the BIIU Interim Appointments Panel decided to drop all charges against Umar Kremlev, according to the statement.

The Russian was re-elected IBA President on May 14. Kremlev remained the sole candidate for the post after his rival, Dutchman Boris van der First, was eliminated from the election.
