The player has been suspended from playing rugby by the RFU. The RFU have no case against the player and he has not been found guilty of any charge.
We need to know if it is this is in breach of the players human rights to be effectively punished by suspension from playing for something which has not been proved. The case is a civil charge and we thought that one was innocent until proved guilty.
Thank you it is becoming clearer. We are obviously upset because we know that the lad concerned has been victimised by what you describe as a whinger.
Can you please explain what you mean in the following paragraph. 'The only Article that does apply is the right to freedom of assembly and that is a derogable article. Since there is an outstanding criminal case, derogation is not likely to be considered unreasonable'.
Does it help us the mount a case against suspension ? Fact is the lad didn't actually do it !! how can we help him to play the spot he loves until he is cleared of the charge ?
