Student athletes involved in school violence will from now on face restrictions in the draft process and taking part in competitions. 

The Sports and Education ministries on Wednesday held a meeting and approved a set of measures to stamp out violence from school athletics and improve human rights in sports.

Under the plan, the Sport Ethics Center under the Sports Ministry will receive reports on bullying in March and April and follow up with investigations.

Authorities will also draft guidelines on sanctions and penalties ranging from community service and suspension, to permanent expulsion from the sport.

Students with bullying records will be restricted in the draft process by universities and professional teams and in national team selections. Mandatory human rights education will also be expanded for players and coaches.
