Petrucci says no to match-fixing amnesty

Italy’s Olympic committee president says he will not support an
amnesty in the investigation into the latest match-fixing scandal
to hit Italian soccer.

Cremona prosecutor Roberto di Martino said on Monday that the
scandal was so vast and involved so many players that an amnesty
might be the best way forward.

On Tuesday, Gianni Petrucci told Italian news agency ANSA he
discussed the matter with Italian soccer federation president
Giancarlo Abete and ”a sporting amnesty is an unfeasible
notion.”

Since the first wave of 16 arrests in June, a total of 33 people
have been arrested, including former Atalanta captain Cristiano
Doni and former Lazio captain Giuseppe Signori.

Several matches in Serie A involving Bari last season are under
investigation.
