The consent expressed by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, also found by the General Prosecutor’s Office for Sport at CONI, is motivated by the fact that part of the payments of the Irpef withholdings relating to the months of September and October 2022 have been made and that, as of 16 December 2022, the deadline last for the fulfilment, the club appeared to have a positive balance on the bank current account which would have in any case allowed the full payment of the disputed withholding taxes.
