A Cover Up In La Liga BBVA
On November 22nd last year, we exclusively disclosed the name of the Assistant Referee who had been approached to undertake matchfixing in El Clasico between Rafa Benitez-managed Real Madrid and Barcelona http://footballisfixed.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/the-planned-matchfixing-of-el-clasico.html
On February 18th, this case was archived over an alleged lack of evidence.
Una puta barbaridad!
The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) statement reads as follows: "The Referee's Technical Committee (CTA) of the RFEF hereby informs the public that the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office in Barcelona has concluded the investigation procedures related to the complaint lodged with it and the Guardia Civil relating to the alleged pressure made by a member of the CTA on a certain number of referees and assistant referees, the possible candidates to be appointed for a certain football match. As a result of the above, the office has proceeded to archive the complaint referred to, on the grounds that it lacks the sufficient evidence to prosper. This is placed on record for the sporting world and the football world in particular."
This is a cover up as the evidence exists.
1. La Liga president Javier Tebas claims the allegations were "implausible" as the refereeing team had not been made public at the time of the Assistant Referee detailing the illicit approach by the CTA to his lawyer. But the selection of the refereeing team for El Clasico had already been made internally which undermines the platitudes of self-confessed Real Madrid fan Tebas.
2. The actual release of the refereeing team to the public was delayed and was made at the time of kick off of the England v France match commemorating the Paris terrorist atrocities and would have also been during the Belgium v Spain game had it not been postponed on security grounds late on. Why was the public announcement delayed and timed at 21:00 hrs Spanish time if there was nothing to hide?
3. If everything was lacking in evidence then why was the official who made the complaint removed from the refereeing team of David Fernandez Borbolan for the El Clasico game and only for that certain football match, appearing as Assistant Referee to Borbolan in all previous and subsequent events?
4. What did Rafa Benitez know of the initial approach by the CTA?
THIS ISN'T JUST ANY GAME, IT IS THE BIGGEST GAME IN THE WORLD AND SYSTEMIC MATCHFIXING WAS ATTEMPTED...
... AND THEN COVERED UP.
Una puta barbaridad!
And while we are on the subject of corruption, as Tebas is painting himself as whiter than white then perhaps he could tell the Spanish public how the other matchfixing investigations are proceeding in relation to fixed matches at the conclusion of previous seasons http://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/mar/17/spain-finally-fighting-match-fixing
