The acting president of the Xunta, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has advanced this Thursday that the Galician Government will open a sanctioning process against CF Fuenlabrada and against the Professional Football League for “a serious breach of public health protocols “. After the weekly meeting of the Galician Government, Núñez Feijóo has indicated that the Xunta has finished the preliminary investigation opened as a result of the positives detected by covid-19 in the Madrid club before the suspension of its league match against Deportivo de La Coruña from a few days ago.
According to the Galician president, once this preliminary instruction is completed, the instructor considers that it is appropriate to open a sanctioning process because “the serious breach of health protocols” meant “a clear risk “to public health, gender social alarm in A Coruña and it affected the Galicia brand credibility as a place “safely”.
In addition, Núñez Feijóo has continued, the breach also meant a “very difficult situation” for the hotel where the players are confined.
“A week later we already have enough information about what happened and we identified the people and institutions that, in our opinion, are responsible,” said the head of the Xunta de Galicia acting, which has affected that the facts investigated by Sanidade are “very serious.”
“There has been a systematic breach of sports and health protocols, in general, and of the Spanish health regulations itself and those of the autonomous communities in the fight against the pandemic,” said Núñez Feijóo, who said that these represent “the data verified “.
For this reason, the instructor appointed by the Galician authorities has decided to end the preliminary phase and open a sanctioning process for “breaches of health regulations” that posed “a health risk.”
Núñez Feijóo has indicated that he understands the right to the presumption of innocence of both Fuenlabrada and the body he presides Javier Tebas, that they will be able to make the allegations they deem appropriate once in the next few days they are notified of the opening of the sanctioning file.
The League expresses its surprise
LaLiga has expressed its “surprise” by the announcement of the Xunta de Galicia of the opening of the file. In a statement, LaLiga said it had learned this Thursday through the media of the completion of the information reserved by the Department of Health of the Xunta de Galicia.
“It is surprising that today, when ten days have passed since the process began, no request for information on the procedure has been received in LaLiga by the Xunta de Galicia and, what is worse, it is publicly judged to our institution, without even having the opportunity to defend itself or provide a single document, “lamented the body chaired by Javier Tebas.
In this sense, LaLiga hopes that this “objective” reserved information remains “reserved” and that its function is limited to the beginning of the administrative file, as well as announced that it will take the “corresponding actions in the event of the incorrect use of this reserved information “.
“Unfortunately these days we are observing how the sports situation of the RC Deportivo it is causing a series of unfair and arbitrary declarations and measures by public administrations that take us back to past times that we thought were happily overrun, “he added.
LaLiga offered to be available to all administrations for “those clarifications that are deemed appropriate.” “What we are not going to consent to is that we are prejudged without even being listened to,” she concluded.
