Two Juventus Supporters Will Be Tried in Paris for Racist Acts in the Stands

There’s fallout following Juventus’ visit on Tuesday to the Parc des Princes. Le Parisien reported on Friday that the court system will try two supporters from the Italian club in Paris for racist acts. 

During the matchup, three adults and a minor were arrested Tuesday evening in Paris after watching videos showing the Juventus supporters allegedly making Nazi salutes or shouting monkey cries inside the Parc des Princes.

Identified via images from police CCTV cameras installed in the stadium, these four men were in the square reserved for Juventus.

The Paris prosecutor’s office indicated that two of the three adults had been called on a date not yet determined to be tried by the criminal court of the capital, one for “public insult of a racist nature” and the other for “apology for crime against humanity.”

Regarding the third adult, the procedure was dismissed for lack of a sufficiently serious offense, according to the prosecution. Finally, about the minor, the process for “public insult” was discharged “under the condition of a ban on appearing in Île-de-France for six months,” further specified the public prosecutor.
