A new case surrounding capital gains discrepancies has been reopened by the FIGC (Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio or Italian Football Federation) prosecutor with charges against Juventus and 8 other clubs.
According to a report from la Repubblica, a prosecution body headed by Giuseppe Chinè requested reopening a previous case on capital gains involving Juventus, who are at its centre, and other Italian clubs. The body believes that the last trial wasn’t fruitful enough and fresh proceedings on the matter should be conducted.
Although the case will be against several clubs, Juventus find itself in deeper water after the ongoing investigation of their financial statements by the Turin’s prosecutor’s office and the UEFA probe into the Bianconeri breaching terms of financial fair play.
Earlier this year, regarding this case, the federal prosecutor had requested the court for a sentence for ex- Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, former vice chairman Pavel Nedved and the other 59 chief executives which also included Napoli’s Aurelio De Laurentiis but the accused personalities got acquitted by the court.
