Panda Global and Capcom Pro Tour have recently released a statement pertaining to the status of Street Fighter specialist Infiltration.

The termination was based on the facts gathered by Panda Global pertaining to the charges whom the player denies. Part of the thread shared by Global was a statement from Infiltration stating his voluntary withdrawal from CPT 2018 and 2019 in order to minimize the damage done to his team and the FGC, all the while maintaining his claim of innocence.
