Harsh press release from the Biancoceleste club: “They have always been at the forefront of publicly condemning, preventing and unreservedly repressing any discriminatory, racist or anti-Semitic demonstration or action. The club is inspired by opposing values: inclusion, sportsmanship and respect for all”
Lazio’s tough stance against the anti-Semitic chants chanted by its fans on Sunday during the derby. The Roman club did so with a long statement in which it openly condemns those gestures and dissociates itself from them. And it also announces that it has already taken steps to identify those responsible, announcing news arriving in the next few hours.
The press release
“Lazio – reads the press release – has always been at the forefront, especially under the current presidency, in publicly condemning, preventing and unreservedly repressing any discriminatory, racist or anti-Semitic demonstration or action. The Company’s sentences against actions of this type, which have nothing to do with healthy typhus as represented by the Company, have always been punctual and never generic, supported by specific initiatives aimed at preventing and combating such phenomena. Lazio dissociates itself from any illegal and anachronistic behavior of this type, as it is above all an injured party by such behaviour. The ignorance, incivility and superficiality of many – continues the note from the club – have spread in stadiums in Italy and not only a dangerous germ, induced by very few: many replicate behaviors of which they do not even know the meaning and scope . We have often been the first and only ones to intervene, denouncing publicly, asking for collaboration with the forces of order for the repression and activating initiatives of an educational nature. We have tried to avoid, isolate and contrast these phenomena. We will continue to do so without hesitation, to defend the image of the company in Italy and abroad, which is also a non-profit organization and has never had anything to do with these actions. Lazio is inspired by opposing values: inclusion, sportsmanship and respect for all. Also in this case we put our safety organization on the field already before and during last Sunday’s match Lazio-Roma, presided over by Prefect Nicolò D’Angelo, former deputy chief of police, to strictly apply the code of ethics, identify those responsible , inhibiting their access to the stadium and appearing as a civil party for compensation for the damages caused. In the next few hours we will communicate the already positive results of our activity, trusting in the effective collaboration of the institutions responsible for safeguarding democratic rules”.
