So what exactly has been decided? I'm reading contradicting reports. Has he been cleared of all charges or what?
Cleared of some charges and Italy's odd statute of limitations took care of the rest, it seems.

The former director was also accused of bullying the transfer market through the GEA player agency, using a secret International SIM card system to communicate with referees and officials privately, as well as other offences such as locking a referee in a dressing room and offering gifts to officials. Moggi was cleared of all these offences.

The 77-year-old reacted to the verdict: "It took nine years to work out that the [2004-05 and 2005-06] seasons were handled fairly, the referee designations were fair and that there was no communication.

"This trial was conducted in an odd way, we joked around for nine years. This has been an unpleasant thing and it has all ended up in nothing."

Former Juventus CEO Antonio Giraudo, who was accused of fraud, also saw his prison sentence of one year and eight months written off due to the statute of limitations.

Fiorentina owners Andrea and Diego Della Valle and Lazio president Claudio Lotito saw appeals against sentences already ruled to have passed the statute of limitations rejected.

Ex-referees Paolo Bertini and Antonio Dattilo were acquitted, but another former Serie A official Massimo De Santis saw his appeal against a 10-month suspended sentence rejected.

Juventus are currently seeking €443 million in damages from the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) over lost revenue and the damage to their reputation as a result of Calciopoli.


It's official: Calciopoli was a sham, Juve cheating never happened :howler:

Italy :proud:

Very basically, Moggi was acquitted of sporting fraud but they maintained his guilt in a "criminal conspiracy." However, his sentence for that, which was suspended anyway, is outside the statute of limitations, so that's a wash. Further, all referees accused were acquitted except two. Therefore the "criminal conspiracy" comprised Moggi... and these two referees... or something along those lines. Yet, the referee selections have proven regular, let alone the outcomes of matches, so, not a very effective conspiracy.

More waiting for the courts to provide their explanations now.

It's a maximum length of time after a crime's been committed that the accused can then be potentially charged.
Except in Italy the statute of limitations can run out during proceedings. So if you got money and good lawyers you can just make appeals and stall the proceedings and until you're in the clear.

I was about to ask how anybody could ever have thought that something like that would be a good idea and why it hasn't been changed. Then I remembered that we're talking about Italy and Berlusconi probably thought it was a fantastic idea.

If we want to have a good look at Moggi for e.g he worked at Napoli& look how they won their second Scudetto& the circumstances behind it:flirt::D.

As it is I don't want to get into arguments,but just saying looking at this situation:).

We all knew that Moggi's superior managerial skills have no equal, after he repeatedly refusing offers from both of the Milan clubs, they have decided to bringing him down at any cost, even if that means the end of serie A as we knew her...
