Liang Wenbo has received his second suspension from snooker of 2022 due to “an ongoing allegation of misconduct.”

The WPBSA have imposed a fresh sanction on the Chinese player, who earlier this year was fined and handed a 12-month community order after pleading guilty to domestic-related assault.

Liang subsequently missed the World Championship at the end of last season and the WPBSA are yet to disclose the details of the misconduct allegation, but they are not related to his previous conviction.

The former English Open winner will remain absent from all events until the conclusion of the investigation.

A statement read: “The WPBSA has today suspended Liang Wenbo from attending or competing in WPBSA sanctioned events.

“This is due to an ongoing allegation of misconduct. The suspension will remain in place until the conclusion of the investigation or the outcome of disciplinary proceedings.

“The WPBSA will not comment further until the investigation is complete.”
