According to the IJF, the two used the Games as a “forum for protest and promotion of political and religious propaganda” with “malicious purpose.”

It was a “clear and serious infraction” of the governing body’s statutes, code of ethics, and the Olympic Charter, according to the disciplinary commission.

Nourine was scheduled to fight Sudanese fighter Mohamed Abdalrasool in his first fight, and a win would have put him in a fight with Israel’s Tohar Butbul.

He was provisionally suspended at the time, and the Algerian Olympic Committee revoked their accreditation and deported them.

The suspension will apply to all IJF events and activities until July 23, 2031, however they can appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Nourine has previously withdrew from competition in order to avoid competing against an Israeli opponent. For the same reason, he withdrew from the 2019 World Championships in Tokyo.
