UEFA charges Romania for fans’ Mladic taunt
Romania faces UEFA sanctions after its fans taunted opposing
Bosnia-Herzegovina followers with a banner supporting alleged war
criminal Ratko Mladic.
UEFA says it has opened a disciplinary case after Romanian fans
displayed the slogan ”Free Mladic” at a 2012 European
Championship qualifier in Bucharest last Friday.
Earlier that day, the Bosnian Serb military commander appeared
before war-crimes judges in The Hague for the first time ahead of
UEFA rules prohibit ”using sporting events for manifestations
of a nonsporting nature.”
Romania, which won 3-0, and Bosnia both face UEFA charges for
fans throwing objects in the stadium.
UEFA’s disciplinary panel will hear the case on June 16.
