However, AIBA’s Executive Director, William Louis-Marie, will represent him. Hoe thanked Ninvalle for the invitation.An invitation was also extended to the Interim Management Committee (IMC) and AMBC to send representatives as is mandated that all sides of the impasse be allowed to present to the Caribbean’s National Federations, their versions of a situation where there are mixed and confusing signals of communications.AIBA has been rocked recently by allegations of financial mismanagement and several committee members have signed a document calling for president Wu to step down.At the upcoming Extraordinary Congress scheduled for Dubai in November, national Federations will vote on whether to have Wu removed from the helm.Since an Executive Committee meeting last month in Moscow, an IMC headed by Italian Franco Falcinelli has claimed to be running the affairs of AIBA, but this has been refuted by Wu who has since put in motion a legal challenge.last_img
