FIGC Prosecutor Appeals Against ‘Plusvalenze’ Acquittal

After receiving the new findings from the district attorney of Turin, the federal prosecutor announced to have appealed against the ruling of the previous ‘plusvalenze’ trial, where all teams and executives were acquitted.

Per Corriere della Sera, Giuseppe Chinè has activated article 63 of the code of sports justice. It’s possible when new relevant evidence that could change the outcome emerges. Sampdoria, Pro Vercelli, Genoa, Parma, Pisa, Empoli, Novara, and Pescara, and 52 total executives have been notified. Napoli haven’t because they didn’t do deals with Juventus.

A court will rule on whether to reopen the trial within a month. On top of asking to revoke the past sentence, the prosecutor opened a fresh inquiry on the same topic that will concern different sides. The DA inspected the moves between the Old Lady, Atalanta, and Sassuolo.

Juventus could face three different procedures on the sports side. The prosecutor is also investigating the so-called ‘manovra stipendi.’ It refers to when players gave up four monthly wages during the pandemic but got three back in the following years. It wasn’t correctly announced and accounted for according to the accusations. UEFA is also assessing whether Financial Fair Play infractions took place.

Chinè had asked for lengthy suspensions and heavy fines against Andrea Agnelli, Fabio Paratici, and all the other officials during the first ‘plusvalenze’ trail. They were cleared by two separate courts, which found it impossible to determine objective valuations of players. The prosecutor will have to prove there was a precise design behind the price tags if the matter is examined again. The array of sanctions is vast, including relegation or exclusion if the numbers were doctored to adhere to the parameters to register to a league.
