After the fifteen penalty points inflicted in January on Juventus Turin, due to capital gains deemed artificial during certain sales of players, then the suspension of this decision, on April 20by the Guarantee College of the Italian Olympic Committee (Coni), seized by the club, the re-examination of the sanction, with a view to a possible re-evaluation of it, will take place on Monday, May 22.
In the reasons for its decision, published this week, this body confirms a “voluntary and repeated alteration of accounting entries” from Juve. But she asks for a reconsideration of the sanction, which opens the way to a reduced penalty.
Juve should therefore know its fate on May 22, just before playing Empoli (36th day of Serie A). There will then only be two days left in the Championship, including a shock against AC Milan, a rival for qualification in the Champions League, on the 37th day, May 28. Juve are currently second, five points ahead of AC Milan, knowing that only the first four in Serie A are qualified for the next C1.
Juve lawyers want a relocation of the criminal trial
However, it can also qualify for the Champions League if successful in the Europa League, in which it plays the semi-finals against Sevilla (go this Thursday at home). Before ordinary justice, a new hearing also took place this Wednesday in Turin, to continue the examination of the requests for dismissal for trial of twelve leaders and former leaders, including the former president, Andrea Agnelli, for alleged financial embezzlement. .
The debates focused on a possible relocation of the future trial to Milan or Rome, requested by the lawyers of the bianconero club, instead of Turin. This would have the effect of delaying the procedure for many months, even years. But the judge decided to rely on the Court of Cation to decide and, pending this decision, set a new hearing for October 26.
