MADRID, March 12 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta, has asked the Barça members and fans to be “calm” despite the fact that Real Madrid has announced that it will appear as the injured party in the ‘Negreira case’, and has recognized that it is not “no surprise” that the white club has joined the rest of the teams.
“Culers, be calm. Barça is innocent of what they are accused of and the victim of a campaign against their honor in which everyone is now involved. No surprise, we will defend Barça and demonstrate the club’s innocence. Many will have to rectify. #totsUnitsFemForça”, stated Laporta on his official Twitter account.
This Sunday, Real Madrid announced that it would appear in the ‘Negreira case’ as an aggrieved party if the complaint by the Prosecutor’s Office is admitted for processing, a decision made after the meeting this Sunday of the Board of Directors of the white club, which showed its ” deep concern about the seriousness of the facts”.
On Friday, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a complaint against FC Barcelona and its former presidents, as well as against Negreira himself and the former directors Grau and Soler. The Prosecutor’s Office accuses them of having allegedly committed the crimes of corruption between individuals in the sports field, unfair administration and documentary falsification. The complaint has been filed in the Investigating Court 1 of Barcelona, which has already received a complaint from the referee Xavier Estrada Fernández against Negreira and his son Javier Enríquez Romero for these events.
However, the Prosecutor’s Office leaves out of its complaint Enríquez Romero, who was the sole administrator of Negreira’s company DASNIL 95 SL, because it has not been proven that “he knew and shared his father’s purpose.”
On February 21, the professional clubs of LaLiga, with the exception of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, expressed their “rejection” and their rejection of the alleged payments to Negreira, while LaLiga warned that it would act “firmly”.
