The Public Prosecutor’s Office of the FIGC has requested a series of suspensions for high-level figures surrounding the ongoing Plusvalenze Trial, including Tottenham Hotspur’s managing director of football, Fabio Paratici (DiMarzio).

The prosecutors have requested a suspension of 16 months and 10 days for the Spurs figure, dating back to his time with Juventus in Italy.

The trial revolves around alleged inflated transfer fees and capital gains in Italy, including Juventus, Napoli, Sampdoria, Genoa, Empoli, and Parma.

In total, 11 different clubs were put up for trial, ranging from Serie A all the way down to Serie C, and the investigation has moved at quite some pace thanks to the new 2019 code of justice in Italy (FootballItalia).

These clubs were accused of varying levels of involvement in inflating transfer fees for player exchanges, thus balancing the books by making it seem as though they were moving more valuable assets than they actually were.

With the trial starting today, the prosecutors have now revealed their requests for the suspension of key figures, including Paratici.

It remains to be seen whether the Tottenham managing director of football will be found guilty and what punishment will be passed.
