2006-12-13 15:46 - FeNZ Advice to SPARC - regarding recent events in Fiji
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZRecent events in Fiji resulted in Sport and Recreation New Zealand (SPARC) requesting information from our sport and others regarding sporting contacts with Fiji, to allow SPARC to provide informed advice for the New Zealand Minister for Sport and the Minister for Foreign Affairs regarding future sporting contacts with Fiji.

The advice provided to SPARC by Fencing New Zealand is as follows:

“Fencing New Zealand does not have the mandate or mechanism to allow restricted contact or sanctions against a national federation or their athletes who are members of a national federation recognized by our international federation, the Fédération Internationale d’Escrime (FIE) and our affiliated body, the Oceania Fencing Confederation. We do not have a mechanism that will permit our organisation or members to restrict sporting contact. Such actions would contravene the spirit and requirements of our fundamental rules and constitutions.”

We also advised them that in 2007 Fencing New Zealand will be hosting an international event, the Oceania Fencing Championships. Also Fencing New Zealand is a member of the Oceania Fencing Confederation, which is sanctioned by our international federation, (the FIE) and  we are currently working with OFC and the FIE to develop the sport of fencing in Oceania.

Irrespective of the level of contact or impact on our sport, this is a matter which cuts to the constitutional heart of our obligations as a National Sporting Organisation, member of the International Fencing Federation and recognized sport of the International Olympic Committee.

Please be assured, as an organisation Fencing New Zealand shall resist debates to take action which contravene our constitutional obligations (national and international) and shall remain true to our objectives of developing our sport of fencing for our members.
