MFA 2018 Malta Football Association vs Danny Kabeya

In January 2019 the Malta Football Association (MFA) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the football player Danny Kabeya after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Cocaine. After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the Athlete was heard for the MFA Control and Disciplinary Board.

The Athlete accepted the test result and denied any use of the prohibited substance without providing any other other explanation.

The Board finds that the test result showed the presence of the prohibited substance and accordingly that the Athlete committed an anti-doping rule violation. The Board considers that the Athlete failed to establish that the violation was not intentional or that the Cocaine possibly only was used socially.

Therefore the MFA Control and Disciplinary Board decides on 29 April 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 14 January 2019.
