Italy's federal prosecutor has
launched an appeal against the acquittals of Juventus players
Simone Pepe and Leonardo Bonucci in the Italian football match-fixing trial.
The football federation (FIGC) disciplinary commission
acquitted the pair, as well as other players, on Friday after
ruling that evidence submitted regarding an alleged attempt to
fix a match between Bari and Udinese in 2010 was inconsistent.
Bonucci was playing for Bari at the time, and Pepe for
Udinese. The match ended 3-3.
Prosecutor Stefano Palazzi, who has asked for Bonucci to be
banned for three-and-a-half years and Pepe for a year, has asked
the Federal Court of Justice to reverse the decision, officials
The two players would have to prepare a defence before
Monday, when the Federal Court would convene to consider the
appeal, reports said.
