Temporary suspension of two International FIFe Judges

The FIFe Board decided to temporarily suspend, for a period of 6 months, the following two FIFe Judges for breaching the FIFe Rules for Judges & Student Judges:
Mr. Yan Roca Folch (FR), Int. FIFe All Breed Judge
Mr. Philippe de Guerny Ventura (FR), Int. FIFe Judge categories 2 & 3 and Breed Groups B and C.
Their temporary suspension will commence on the 01.01.2019 and last until the 30.06.2019. In addition, both judges are temporarily suspended as instructing, supervising and examining judges, i.e. they are not allowed to instruct student judges, to supervise stages or act as examiners, from 23.10.2018 until 31.12.2023.
Mr. Roca Folch issued and signed a student judge certificate for cats belonging to a category he was not assigned to judge that day and gave this to Mr. de Guerny Ventura, who in his turn used this certificate for an exam application, even though he was fully aware about the circumstances under which this certificate was issued.
The FIFe Board is sad that it had to come to this, but is of the opinion that it has to take the responsibility for the correct running of the day-to-day affairs in FIFe.

By order of the Board,
Annette Sjödin – President
Eric Reijers – General Secretary
