The Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) have accepted most of Lazio president Claudio Lotito’s grounds of appeals and have referred the case back to the FIGC Federal Court of Appeal.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Collegio di Garanzia accepted all but one of the Biancocelesti president’s grounds of appeal, meaning that the case will now go back into the hands of the FIGC Federal Court of Appeal.
The sanctions will have to be re-evaluated by this court and so a new date will be set soon. Lotito’s 12-month ban has been annulled and in light of yesterday’s sentence, the Lazio president will be hoping for a less severe punishment.
Due to yesterday’s decision, this case will continue to drag on for a longer time span now, with developments expected soon.
