Lazio to also sue Le Iene

Lazio have announced that they will be taking legal action against Le Iene over corruption allegations concerning Claudio Lotito.

The satirical TV show will broadcast a programme tomorrow on how Lotito allegedly paid former Lazio striker Mauro Zarate ‘under the table’ through a shell company.

However, the Aquile President hit back in a statement on the club’s official website: “Having watched the Le Iene programme with my legal team, which has already been maliciously spread on the internet and through newspapers, causing my character and S.S. Lazio S.p.A., a listed company, very serious damages, I don’t believe in giving this further resonance with my participation.

“Furthermore, it remains the case that the contents of the programme are completely unreliable and unfounded that those responsible will be held accountable by the appropriate civil and penal courts of law.”

It comes after Lotito sued the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper for defamation relating to a similar issue.
