Lazio president Claudio Lotito’s hearing in federal court relating to violations of the anti-Covid protocols has been scheduled for the 16th March, according to a report from Italian news outlet ANSA earlier today.

The report details how the 63-year-old Italian businessman was referred to federal court by federal prosecutor Giuseppe Chinè last week, alongside club doctors Ivo Pulcini and Fabio Rodia, for complaints that the trio violated the FIGC’s anti-Covid health protocols.

The accusations relate to the period at the end of October and start of November last year, when Biancocelesti trio Ciro Immobile, Lucas Leiva and Thomas Strakosha dealt with inconsistent Covid-19 tests.

Lotito and the doctors are accused of violating article 4.1 of the Sports Justice Code, article 44.1 of the Federal Organizational Rules, the FIGC health protocols and the provisions of the FIGC communiqué of September 1, 2020 in the case of ‘failure to comply with health protocols’.
