A release from the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport said that the meeting will be at 10:00 am at the Jamaica Conference Centre, Port Royal Street, downtown Kingston.

JADCO, represented by Attorney Lackston Robinson, has accused Russell of failing to file his whereabouts on three occasions during a 12-month period.

Russell’s lawyers, including Queen’s Counsel Patrick Foster and Donovan Walker, have maintained that the respondent was not negligent.

Under World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) regulations, three whereabouts filing failures during a one-year period amount to a failed test, which may attract a ban of up to 24 months.
