Moggi's CONI case adjourned

The CONI conciliation court has adjourned Luciano Moggi’s hearing until September 21, as the former Juve official continues his battle against the punishments he recieved following the match-fixing scandal.

The ex-director general of the Bianconeri club was handed a five-year ban and a first appeal to civil court TAR was already rejected in August.

Conciliator Ciro Pellegrino explained the reasons behind Thursday’s decision. “Moggi resigned from his role during the disciplinary procedure and this may now represent a conflict with the compromise clause,” he stated.

In fact, the former Juve director is no longer a member of the Federation and therefore may not be allowed to appeal to CONI – the Italian Olympic Committee.

“Moggi will have to appear in person on September 21, we will then be able to decide on the matter,” added Pellegrino.

The FIGC lawyer Luigi Medugno is instead convinced that Moggi’s conciliation request is not admissible. “Moggi affirms that he is no longer a member of the Federation, but this also means that he cannot ask to conciliate with us,” he noted.
