The two years imprisonment sentence was handed to Jean de Dieu Wednesday October 14, 2021 by a court in Rwanda Kigali.
Jean de Dieu Bagirishya a Sports Journalist and Volleyball Federation Vice President popularly known as Jado Castar was earlier arrested in September shortly after Rwanda female team were disqualified for having ineligible players in the team during the last Women’s African Volleyball Championship stageg in the Kigali Arena.
The sports Journalist pleaded guilty last Friday to forging player documents which has landed him the penalty.
As reported by BBC SPORTS, “The disqualification came following an investigation into Rwanda’s use of four Brazilian players after Nigeria and Morocco lodged complaints after the hosts beat both teams in the group stage of the championship.
Tournament officials ruled that Rwanda, who had been due to play in the semi-finals prior to their enforced exit, had used the Brazilians without the proper clearance.”
Despite the sanction meted on the Volleyball Federation Vice President,Jean De Dieu Bagirishya has been given then leverage to appeal the verdict.
