Juventus directors acquitted
Antonio Giraudo, Luciano Moggi and Roberto Bettega, the former Juventus directors, have been acquitted of false accounting charges dating back to 2001.
The three were implicated in the 2006 Calciopoli scandal, leaving the club that summer in disgrace.
Prosecutors had, in separate charges, accused the three of cooking the books by overstating ticket sales and commissioning Juventus intermediary fees which didn’t exist.
Under particular scrutiny were the transfers of Zinedine Zidane, Enzo Maresca, Fabrizio Miccoli, and Adrian Mutu.
All three were acquitted of the charges in 2009, but prosecutors appealed that decision.
Today Turin’s appeals court confirmed the acquittal because the statute of limitations has expired.
