Barcelona has engaged in corrupt refereeing habits, whether or not conventional or systemic, which could possibly be thought of to have offended or affected Actual Madrid, C.F. as a participant within the First Division League competitors.
Quite the opposite, the proof accessible at present is overwhelming and prevents us from basing ourselves on an alleged insufficiency of proof on which to allege that no membership was harmed by the details denounced.
“Let’s speak about one or the opposite typical determine (sports activities corruption or bribery), Actual Madrid, C.F. is equally offended and its energetic legitimacy to train the personal prosecution is equally unquestionable. Not one of the appeals supply any factual or authorized cause to justify why, within the opinion of these below investigation, whoever organizes or manages a contest needs to be thought of aggrieved and, nonetheless, the golf equipment collaborating in the identical, which might have been much more straight harmed by its attainable felony alteration, mustn’t,” Actual Madrid maintains.
“The looks of Actual Madrid, C.F. doesn’t jeopardize the appropriate of these below investigation to a trial with out undue delays, nor does it open the door to an enormous look within the case of soccer golf equipment that will make it procedurally unmanageable. The grouping of personal accusations below the identical illustration and protection isn’t applicable,” it emphasizes.
In a 29-page transient of allegations despatched to the Provincial Court docket of Barcelona, Actual Madrid requests the dismissal of the enchantment filed by Barcelona in opposition to its look as a non-public prosecutor within the proceedings.
The crime of sports activities corruption

It’s irrelevant whether or not or not it’s presently confirmed that Actual Madrid, C.F. suffered an financial or sporting injury.
Such injury can’t be dominated out in any respect, nor that our consumer may have been affected by an eventual alteration of the outcomes of the competitors, since there may be stable proof of the habits of sports activities corruption below investigation and of its seriousness.
“Neither is it attainable to think about the curiosity within the purity of the competitors as one thing normal and never subjective in a particular membership. It’s clear that the curiosity of the golf equipment that take part in the identical league competitors during which actions tending to make FC Barcelona profit from the remainder is an curiosity worthy of safety and that goes past the curiosity of society generally,” the letter factors out.
In line with Actual Madrid, “we consider that it’s deeply voluntarist to faux to defend that, as of at present, there isn’t a proof of sporting corruption of an uncommon gravity and scope. It is sufficient to make a short and non-exhaustive recapitulation of what has already been accredited to type an concept that the defensive discourse primarily based on an alleged evidentiary insufficiency of the weather which can be dealt with is empty, hole and really unrealistic”.
