Spanish Football Federation denounce Negreira case judge after corruption allegations levelled at referees

Last week, Joaquin Aguirre – who is the court magistrate leading the investigation into the Negreira case – claimed that there were “a group of corrupt referees” that were working with Barcelona during the period in which their alleged relationship with Enriquez Negreira took place.

The Technical Committee of Referees (CTA) categorically denied these accusations, with reports suggesting that they could take legal action against Aguirre following these remarks.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have now waded into the situation, with Cadena COPE (via MD) reporting that they have denounced Aguirre for his comments. They regret that he has accused a group of referees of corruption without giving specific names, and the legal services of the RFEF have now presented a letter to the General Council of the Judiciary against Aguirre so as to urge him to name the referees who appear in the order as accused of being corrupt.

Barcelona continue to be under investigation by Spanish authorities after being charged with bribery, a charge which they have strenuously denied.
