The Federal Court of Appeals has accepted the FIGC Prosecutor’s request to reopen the sporting trial against Juventus for their alleged usage of falsified capital gains and handed them a 15-point penalty.
ANSA details how FIGC prosecutor Giuseppe Chiné asked the Federal Court of Appeals to reopen proceedings against the Bianconeri following new revelations from the Prisma investigation, which is analysing the club’s recent financial practices and alleged secret player payments agreed during the early stages of the COVID pandemic.
The Federal Court of Appeals has accepted Chiné’s case and reopened sporting proceedings against Juventus and their executives, clearing the other involved clubs, which includes Sampdoria, Empoli, Genoa, Parma, Pisa, Pescara, Pro Vercelli and Novara.
Chiné had asked for a nine-point deduction for Juventus, as well as suspensions for Andrea Agnelli, Fabio Paratici, Federico Cherubini and the rest of the board of directors. The Federal Court of Appeals has decided to hand the Bianconeri a 15-point penalty, putting them on 22 points in the league.
These sanctions are not related to the Prisma investigation or it’s examination of alleged secret payment agreements between the club and their players during the early stages of the COVID pandemic.
Juventus are able to appeal this decision to Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport at CONI. The reasoning behind these decisions will be announced in the coming days.
