Following the match in the Women’s EHF European Championship between Serbia and Norway on 4 December 2012, the EHF was made aware of an incident or incidents in the match involving the Serbian coach, Saša Bošković, and Norwegian player, Linn Jørum Sulland.
The EHF EURO 2012 Tournament Management has examined video footage from the game and considers the action of the coach in the match unacceptable.
It is however evident that the media, through the selection of match scenes, has not presented a complete picture of the incidents.
No action was taken during the match nor was a report made by the referees or the match delegate.
There were also no official complaints received by the EHF.
Under the existing regulations, no disciplinary action procedures have been initiated following the match.
The EHF EURO Tournament Management will, however, issue a statement to all delegations, referees and technical officials to the effect that such an action cannot be accepted and that officials must be vigilant for similar infringements during the course of the Women’s EHF European Championship.
The EHF will revise the EHF EURO tournament regulations in the future in order that similar cases can be initiated by the Tournament Management.
Before EHF media statement, Serbian handball Federation apologized because of act of NT coach, Saša Bošković.
