Former-Hockey coach restrained from publishing players' confidential details

NEW DELHI: Sjoerd Marijne, the former coach of the Indian Women's Hockey team, and HarperCollins have been temporarily barred from releasing private information about players in the Dutchman's new book, according to the Delhi High Court on Tuesday.

Justice Amit Bansal ruled while scheduling the case for the hearing on November 18 that " ad interim injunction is given barring the defendants from releasing the book including portions (of sensitive information of women players)"
The Dutch tactician's memoir, "Will Power: The Inside Story of the Incredible Turnaround in Indian Women's Hockey," was allegedly in violation of the code of conduct when Hockey India filed a complaint against Marijne and HarperCollins Publishers India Private Limited. The book has not yet been released.

Justice Bansal referred to an order from the court's hearing of the appeal of female hockey player Gurjit Kaur, who objected to the book's publication, on September 19 during the hearing.

Kaur claimed in her appeal that the book contains certain private information that she confided in Marijne while he was the coach.  The player emphasised that disclosing those information on her medical condition would also violate her right to privacy.

The Rani Rampal-led Indian women's hockey team achieved a remarkable fourth-place result at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 thanks in large part to Dutch tactician Marijne.
