The Badminton World Federation has accepted a request from its Deputy President Gustavo Salazar Delgado to be excused from his duties until an investigation against him is completed.
The request stems from accusations against Salazar in his homeland, Peru, related to personal business matters. They are entirely unrelated to badminton and Salazar’s role as BWF Deputy President.
In his communication to BWF, Salazar indicated he would step aside for the time being so as not to cause any reputational or undue damage to the BWF while the investigation is in progress.
The BWF has no further comment, at the moment, on this matter.
