The FIGC Prosecutor’s office demanded that Lazio be given a €200,000 fine and a ban for president Claudio Lotito as a result of the Covid-19 test case in Federal Court earlier today.
According to a report from the Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi, the Biancocelesti have been accused of violating the FIGC’s protocol for failing or delaying in communicating to the Local Health Authority the positive cases of Covid-19 ahead of the matches against Club Brugge, Zenit and Torino.
The head of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, Giuseppe Chiné, has requested that Lazio be punished with a €200,000 fine and that president Lotito is banned for 13 months and 10 days, with club doctors Fabio Rodia and Ivo Pulcini being banned for 16 months.
Torino requested to join the trial at Federal Court as a plaintiff but it was not allowed by the court. A banner was placed outside the court by some Lazio fans in support of the club.
