Juve may have acted in good faith says GIP judge

Prosecutors set to request indictments for Agnelli and others

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 1 - Juventus may have acted in "good faith" in relation to allegedly inflated earnings from player transfers, preliminary investigations judge (GIP) Ludovico Morello wrote in explanation of his decision of October 12 to deny prosecutors' requests for restrictive measures to be imposed on former chairman Andrea Agnelli and other people under investigation over the Turin giant's accounts.
    Agnelli quit as chairman this week along with the rest of the board amid a probe by Turin prosecutors into allegations that the club presented false information to investors about its accounts in recent years.
    Sources said Wednesday that prosecutors have requested that Agnelli and several other suspects be sent to trial.
    The question of the allegedly inflated salaries is only part of the alleged wrongdoing.
    Investigators are also looking into allegations that the Serie A club made secret salary payments after declaring that players had agreed to take wage cuts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
    The accounts of the club, a listed company, have also come under the scrutiny of Italian stock-market regulator Consob, and the Italian Soccer Federation has opened a sporting probe into the case. (ANSA).
