the Kid is innocent. It recognizes the powerful forces in the BMX-the sport, which has got him banned from all cycling for two years. But to slow down a young talented cykelrytters career is a price that the Danish Cycling Union is willing to pay to get rid of his father, who has fallen out of favor in the sport.
It is evidenced by the voluminous documentation, which Ekstra Bladet has undergone in the case of Luca Taj and his father, the Nobility of the Taj. The family of Taj, who lives in Christchurch, has been engaged in the BMX-the sport in various clubs on Zealand, but at the moment, is it all driven outlier – so far, that the young the threefold Danish champion, nordic champion and number seven in the world ranking is on the road to give up his sport.
the Background is that a number of persons, as the Nobility of the Taj is shorn unclear, has raised accusations that he has appeared threatening, and that he has relationships to the bikers and drug-related crimes. It is the prosecutor, as the Nobility of the Taj pure rejects, but he has never been given the opportunity to defend himself in the case.
- It first went up for me, that there was ever a case, and that it was even decided, since I'm 18. January turned to the DCU to get renewed Lucas licensing, says Adel Taj to Ekstra Bladet.
When I got to know that Luca administrative have been denied a license and thus is excluded in the next two years.

the Decision on the exclusion of the boy resting apparently on a one-sided and flawed casework, as the Taj-the family has not been heard before DCU took the decision on the exclusion of Luca Taj. The family thus has no chance had to defend itself, and it awakens the sense of wonder in law professor Jens Evald from Aarhus University.
- It is long established that there is a duty of consultation arises in such matters. When the accused party has not been heard, there is talk about a procedural flaw, " says Jens Evald, who is an expert in sports law and is linked to the sportsdomstolen CAS in Switzerland.
Evald have no immediate objections to the provision of DCU's framework, which is used to punish a child for wrongdoing, as the child's parent or guardian has committed. The principle is also known from the world of football, where football clubs can be punished for breaking the law, as the club's fans commit, says Evald.
Luca Taj has won lots of awards and medals in virtue of his talent. Now considering he has to find another sport. Seen here he is with his mother, Louise. Photo: Olivia Loftlund.
the relevant provision of The DCU's sporting rules shall apply only for the BMX-sport and exclusively for riders under the age of 18 years. It makes the DCU's administration manager Jens-Erik Majlund aware of in the letter of 21. January 2019, which the Nobility of the Taj to be formally informed of the exclusion.
the Decision is appealed to the DCU's Ordensudvalg, which is currently hearing the case. Jens-Erik Majlund, therefore, is not to comment on the matter at the present time.
--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------Confederation in doubt about the rules
No one disputes that Luca Taj is an innocent victim in the case. He has done nothing wrong, but must, according to DCU fine for his father's alleged bad behavior. Photo: Olivia Loftlund.
It is DCU District of Zealand, which set of DCU's board of directors, to Luca Taj gets suspended his license for two years. A note from the meeting at which the DCU's board of directors discussed the matter, it appears that the District Zealand believed that there is no legal basis in the rules to exclude Luca Taj because of his father's alleged behavior.
’Our laws and regulations do not cover such a situation,’ reads the setting, which over six pages summarizes the dissatisfaction with the Nobility of the Taj.
IN DCU's decision of 21. January 2019, the error is corrected, as the administration manager Jens-Erik Majlund states that the suspension of Luca Tajs license is made pursuant to chapter 12, section four, of the union's sports rules.
No one thought to correct the obvious flaw, that the Nobility Taj no chance was given to defend themselves against accusations that he should have behaved aggressively and threatening to several people in the BMX environment.
- I was not one of God's best children, when I was younger. I acknowledge that glossy, but I'm in a completely different place today, says Adel Taj, as hovedrystende rejects the multitude of accusations made against him, and eagerly demonstrating a clean record.
- I have a temper, and I am committed, but it is crazy that an innocent nine-year-old boy should be thrown out, because there are some who believe that his father is an idiot.
- DCU emphasises the straight ahead would be dangerous to have me in the sport, but it is nonsensical. I have, on the contrary, put a large piece of voluntary work in the sport, which I also have supported financially, says Adel Taj, among other things, provided a sponsorship of 60,000 crowns to Køge BMX in 2015.
the President of DCU District Sealand, Charlotte Frank, don't want to comment on the matter.
--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------Old nag costly

Prior to the sensational exclusion of Luca Taj is a long-standing contentions between the Nobility of the Taj and the leaders in the BMX sport.
the eagerness to get at Adel Taj has sometimes assumed absurd form, as, for example, he at an extraordinary general meeting is excluded from Roskilde BMX, although he was not a member.
Several episodes, where the Taj is claimed to have appeared aggressive and threatening, are listed in the six pages closely written statement of facts, as DCU District Zealand has used as the indictment in the case.
’To let the family behind Luca Taj continue in the sport is directly dangerous for the DCU as a confederation,’ it sounds in a post from the BMX, who regrets that Luca Taj ’an innocent victim’.
The unnamed author of the post turns on fast, to the Nobility of the Taj and ’his thugs’ from the biker has visited and threatened people in the BMX sport, and to the Nobility of the Taj has pursued persons in the car. Still without evidence, it is argued that further in the post, that the Nobility Tajs business in Køge has been politiovervåget on suspicion of drug trafficking.
the Charges get Adel Taj-shaking moment on the head. A for a review he charges and reject the way, the episodes are described.
- Everything has been distorted completely to their advantage, and it now goes out over my boy, which gets his career destroyed completely, says Adel Taj.
the Nobility of the Taj is an entrepreneur and has been the proprietor of a strip of businesses. Most recently he has driven the company Car Steam Wash, offered car wash in the parking garages.
