The betting scandal that shook French scandal is having its final epilogue. Nikola Karabatic has been given the maximum suspension the regulations allow. That means he will be sidelined for 6 matches if the suspension is confirmed, in case the announced appeal of the suspension does not go through for Karabatic and his club Aix. He can continue playing as long as the appeal is underway.
Six games suspension was also given to Mladen Bojinovic, Dragan Gajic, Samuel Honrubia, Luka Karabatic, Primoz Prost and Issam Tej, all found guilty of “behaviour which does not conform with the principles and rules of handball and a manifest infringement of the values held by the LNH”.
