MADRID, 21 May. (EUROPA PRESS) –
LaLiga has requested all the available images to open an investigation into what happened at Mestalla this Sunday, in a duel between Valencia and Real Madrid marked by the protocol against racism for insults to Vinicius.
“Once the investigation is concluded, in the event of detecting a hate crime, LaLiga would proceed to take the appropriate legal actions. LaLiga will also investigate the images in which racist insults were allegedly directed towards Vinicius Jr. outside the Mestalla stadium “, says the employers after the duel of day 35.
LaLiga did not take long to respond to the Real Madrid players and coach, who asked for measures after ‘Vini’ refused to continue playing due to the insults. The Brazilian signaled and faced the bottom of Mestalla, while De Burgos Bengoetxea stopped the match and asked for a warning over the public address system.
In fact, in its statement on this investigation, the employer recalls that it has been proactive in the face of all racist incidents against the Real Madrid CF player. Thus, LaLiga has filed a complaint on a dozen occasions in the last two seasons before the RFEF Competition Committee, the State Commission against Violence, Racism, Xenophobia and Intolerance in Sport, the Hate Prosecutor’s Office and the Courts .
In addition, LaLiga, which always insists that it acts within its powers, which does not include sanctions, recalls that in order to speed up the identification of any person or group of people who manifest racist behavior in any stadium or outside it, it has set up an email StopRacismo@laliga.es so that fans can contact LaLiga and provide the necessary identification to file the pertinent complaints.
