The punishments levied against Lazio and president Claudio Lotito following the Covid-19 test case are set to be reduced.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, CONI’s Collegio di Garanzia decided to accept parts of the Biancocelesti’s appeal following the initial punishments that were given as a result of the inconsistent Covid-19 testing case.

This means that the case will be re-opened, with a new court date being set within the next two months.

The most serious indictments have been dropped, and both Lazio president Lotito and doctors Ivo Pulcini and Fabio Rodia have been exonerated by Collegio president Franco Frattini, who said that it’s up to “the public health authority to judge the adoption of measures to contain the infection.”

The case has been referred back to the Federal Court of Appeal now. If the sentence of a 12-month ban is to be dropped, then a new punishment would be devised.
