Lee Verdict Due Wednesday

With the snooker world waiting on news of the punishment to be handed down on Stephen Lee following the damning findings of Adam Lewis QC last week, the WPBSA today issued a statement to the effect that we will have to wait a little longer, following a hearing today.

In fact, a decision on sanction is now set to be handed down tomorrow, a not unsurprising development given the fact that a final decision could not have been reached prior today, when presumably legal representatives for both the governing body and Lee, were able to be heard.

Speculation as to the severity of the punishment that Lee may receive has been rife, with many tipping a life ban for the 2012 PTC Grand Finals champion, but it will have been the job of Lee’s team today to attempt to mitigate the guilty findings as far as possible, in the hope of minimising such any ban

Either way, a decision is expected tomorrow, more when I have it…
