Lazio president Claudio Lotito is hoping for a full acquittal in tomorrow’s session at the Court of Appeals.
According to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Biancocelesti president will be in court tomorrow alongside doctors Ivo Pulcini and Fabio Rodia, appealing against the punishments they were given in the inconsistent Covid-19 tests trial.
Lotito was given a seven-month ban with 12-month bans for the two doctors, as well as a €150,000 fine to the club, but the Lazio president is confident of a complete acquittal tomorrow.
The Federal Prosecutor’s Office had asked for the club to be fined €200,000, with longer bans for Lotito and the doctors.
The Italian businessman believes that he has respected all the protocols and doesn’t accept the punishment levied against him and the two doctors.
The public prosecutor’s office has also opted for the appeal, reiterating the requests made in the first trial.
Tomorrow will be the second meeting in court, but probably not the last as an appeal can also be brought to the Collegio di Garanzia of CONI.
