Two Juve fans face trial for racist gestures

Two Juventus fans will be tried in Paris for racism at the Parc des Princes during a Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain, a source in the city’s prosecutor’s office told AFP on Friday.

Three adults and a minor were arrested Tuesday night in Paris after Italian fans made Nazi salutes or monkey gestures at the game.

The four were identified by police video surveillance cameras at the stadium and were in the area reserved for Juve fans, a police source said.

The Paris prosecutor’s office said that two of the three adults had been summoned to be tried by the criminal court, one for “public insult of a racist nature” and the other for “apology for crimes against humanity”.

No charges were made against the third adult as the evidence did not clearly show he had committed a possible crime.

The minor was banned from the Ile-de-France region for six months, the public prosecutor said.

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings, with the appointment of an “inspector” to investigate “suspicions of discriminatory behaviour by Juventus supporters” during the match, which PSG won 2-1.
