‘Ultra’ in court for punching steward

‘Ultra’ in court for punching steward

By Staff Writer - May 18, 2017

stade louisAn “Ultra” supporter of AS Monaco who punched a steward has appeared before Monaco’s Criminal Court. The steward refused access to the accused when his ticket didn’t correspond to the position he wanted at Stade Louis ll in the game against Turin on
May 3.

The 23-year-old Mali resident admitted the offence and apologised to the court. He was arrested as he left the stadium on the night of the match. “I regret my gesture,” he said. For his part, the steward said he would not be bringing a case for damages, but instead he wanted “justice to do its work”.

While the prosecutor asked for 15 days in jail, citing the need for stewards to do their work, to help avoid a tragedy when crowds move suddenly – a reference to the Hillsborough disaster in the UK – the defence lawyer called for a conditional sentence. The tribunal decided on eight days in jail.
