They raided the Belgrano stadium after controversy over the capacity – Viva la radio

A series of raids, ordered by the prosecutor José Mana, were carried out this Thursday afternoon at the Belgrano stadium, after the controversy over the capacity in the match between “El Pirata” and Deportivo Riestra.

It should be remembered that, by provision of the national government, up to 50% capacity is allowed on Argentine soccer fields after the resolution of the return of the public.

According to images and videos of the meeting last Friday, the “Giant of Alberdi” seemed to exceed that capacity.

However, the Cordovan club issued a statement in which they assure that it was respected, and that there was “48.3% of the 28,500 capacity enabled for this match by the Municipality.”

“On the other hand, the reports from Grupo Ecsa, the club’s access control provider, show that they have 12,916 membership card entries to the stadium, which give a very similar number to the 13,273 authorized cards,” continues the “Celeste” message.

For her part, the secretary of the prosecutor José Mana, María José López, told Chain 3 that “the raid is the result of actions that began ex officio on Monday as a result of the soccer game that took place on Friday at the Belgrano headquarters”

“It was at the club’s headquarters, in order to be able to learn about and have contact with the sports field itself and with the administrative headquarters to collect the pertinent information that allows the prosecutor to evaluate the situation,” he added.

He explained that the Córdoba Police, the Directorate of Criminal Intelligence and the Judicial Police participated because they carried out “photographs, plans, measurements of the stands and the fields,” among other things.

“A lot of documentary sources have been collected that will be the subject of analysis next week. With that documentary and an exhaustive analysis, the prosecutor will be able to make a more precise determination or conclusion,” he said.

Asked about possible sanctions against the club, López explained: “There is widespread confusion. We are investigating whether there are criminal acts, but not the club itself. The prosecutor is not in a position to impose administrative sanctions on the club, that would be a matter for AFA”.

“If it is found that there were more people than allowed, it will be necessary to investigate who was responsible for authorizing entry to the field,” he completed, while affirming that Belgrano “as an institution in itself, has no responsibility.”
