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.
