CBV received the decision of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), presided by Ary Graça, on events occurred at the World Championship in Poland, in September.
Brazilian head coach Bernardo Rezende was suspended on 10 matches and fined with 2,000 Dollars. The libero Mário Junior received punishment of six matches, Murilo Endres is suspended for one game and the captain of the Brazilian national team, Bruno Rezende, has to pay the fine of 1,000 Dollars.
CBV issued a note in which it rejected the attitude of the FIVB and considered these fines as a clear demonstration of retaliation to the CBV because of the corruption scandal which involves suspicious payments of its members, presented on Friday.
CBV will provide legal support to Brazilian players and will appeal in a higher court. More than that, in solidarity with its players and the head coach, and because of a respect for Brazilian fans, President of the CBV, Walter Pitombo Laranjeiras, announced that this organization will not organize, „on Brazilian soil“, the World League Finals, scheduled for July 2015!
