WPBSA Statement – Mark Allen

Having reviewed comments made in the press conference after yesterday’s match at the Betfred.com World Championship, the WPBSA will be writing to Mark Allen to initiate disciplinary proceedings.

Mark Allen was recently fined £1,000 for comments made in China during the Haikou World Open last month, and now faces further action.

WPBSA Chairman Jason Ferguson said: “The WPBSA is responsible for the governance of snooker worldwide and takes very seriously comments made which could be perceived to be directed at a particular nation. The Chairman of the disciplinary committee Nigel Mawer is making further inquiries into this incident. Mark Allen will be given 14 days to respond to the letter.”
