Dear Colleagues,

After a long time of patience and endeavor we are now in a new phase of the process of the European Wushu Kungfu Federation (EWUF) problematics.

As you remind the IWUF has made in early April a temporarily suspension of the EWUF. In all democratically entities the possibility of going into appeal should be provided, and this has happened.

The President of the EWUF, Mr. Raymond Smith, went into an Appeal against the IWUF executive board decision after a thoroughly investigation and chance of defense to the Jury of appeal.

The IWUF published the IWUF Presidents letter with the outcome (see attachment) of the decision:

In final summation the Jury of Appeal concluded:

“The Jury of Appeal considered all the arguments of the Appellant (EWUF) and IWUF and concluded that the appeal shall be considered inadmissible, as it was lodged against a decision, which is not final and binding. 

Irrespective of the foregoing, the Jury of Appeal analysed all the arguments of the Appellant raised on the merits and dismissed them all.”

Accordingly, as the Appeal by EWUF, now having been rejected, the IWUF Ethics Committee will resume its investigation into EWUF and its Board members.

Please find the publication on the website of the IWUF:

May I kindly ask to remain patient for the next step, meanwhile we start already the preparation of our activities to implement as soon as possible.

Thank you for your confidence!

Together we still are STRONG!

Yours sincerely,

Patrick Van Campenhout

EUWUF president
