Agnelli steps up Juventus campaign for Calciopoli justice

Juventus President Andrea Agnelli last week vowed to restore his Club’s reputation in light of new evidence previously omitted from the 2006 Calciopoli trial.
“We presented a dossier to FIGC President Giancarlo Abate. Soon enough we will start to demand an explanation. As for the Napoli trial, if the club is cleared of illegality then we will consider action to have the Scudetti reassigned,” Agnelli told Tuttosport.
Since he assumed the role of President, the young Agnelli has been determined to the right the wrongs of previous management and defend the honour of Juventus with regards to the Calciopoli, the scandal that has destroyed the once invincible black and white squad.
He has made the demands of his Club incredibly clear. The first is the revocation of the 2006 title that was assigned to Inter – a title the Old Lady believes she won on the field. The second was the request to reopen the trial due to the emergence of new evidence based on article 39 of the Sports Justice Code. Whether or not Juventus can actually revoke the 2006 Sports title and demand their Scudetti back depends on the outcome of the Naples trial that will conclude in the spring.
Article 39 of the Sports Justice Code reads that all decisions taken by organs of sporting justice may be contested for revision before the Federal Court of Justice by the discovery of new facts or documents. Within the article, there are five separate subsections and these are the instances in which this article applies.
For example, a case can be reopened if, according to subsection ‘c’, influential documents were not presented in the prior proceeding, or in the case of subsection ‘d’, new facts and knowledge have emerged since that may well warrant a different verdict.
Luciano Moggi’s lawyers have already proved that certain phone calls and documents have been omitted from the original trial, leading to what they claim to be an unjust verdict. On the back of what Moggi’s lawyers have proved, and in accordance with this article, Juventus stand a good chance of revoking the 2006 trial and receiving a favourable outcome. Pending that result, the Old Lady can then demand to have her two stripped Serie A titles reinstated.
In early November, Nicola Penta, a lawyer and a consultant to Moggi, was asked what the Turin Giants can expect from the conclusion of the trial. He responded that, pending acquittals, the trial can be re-opened and Juventus can reclaim their titles. Effectively Juve’s fate is determined by Moggi’s innocence. If acquitted, Juventus could in theory work on the restoration of the titles, but it is by no means a foregone conclusion they would succeed, despite Massimo Moratti’s alleged nervousness with regards to the issue.
Abete claimed at the time that the FIGC respected the federal office and would do so with its conclusions. However, giving back Juventus their titles would effectively mean admitting that the last four years have been a lie and that teams have been weakened and reputations tarnished without just cause. Even if Juve have a strong case to warrant another verdict, would it be treated fairly?
There is every reason to expect the Old Lady would file suits for lost revenue and defamation, whilst certain individuals would also look for personal compensation. In light of this, how sure are we that justice, if it hasn’t already, will prevail? Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
