The Federal Court of Appeals has accepted the FIGC prosecutor’s request to reopen the athletic trial against Juventus for their alleged use of falsified capital gains and imposed a penalty of 15 points.
ANSA details how FIGC prosecutor Giuseppe Chiné asked the Federal Court of Appeal to reopen proceedings against the Bianconeri following new revelations from the Prisma investigation, which analyzes the club’s recent financial practices and alleged secret player payments agreed at the start of the COVID pandemic.
The Federal Court of Appeal has accepted Chiné’s case and reopened the sports proceedings against Juventus and its managers, exonerating the other clubs involved, which includes Sampdoria, Empoli, GenoaParma, Pisa, Pescara, Pro Vercelli and Novara.
Chiné had requested a nine-point deduction for Juventus, as well as suspensions for Andrea Agnelli, Fabio Paratici, Federico Cherubini and the rest of the board. The Federal Court of Appeal decided to give the Bianconeri a 15-point penalty, putting them on 22 points in the league.
These sanctions are not related to the Prisma investigation or the review of alleged secret payment arrangements between the club and its players at the start of the COVID pandemic.
Juventus can appeal this decision to the Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport of CONI. The motivation for these decisions will be announced in the coming days.
