Uruguayan Clubs Push For Legal Action Against CONMEBOL President On Suspicion Of Fraud

A Uruguayan prosecutor on Friday asked a national court to charge CONMEBOL President Eugenio Figueredo with "fraud and money laundering following accusations presented by eight Uruguayan clubs," according to the EFE. The clubs "requesting that charges be filed are Peñarol, Miramar Misiones, Cerro Largo, El Tanque Sisley, Rentistas, Cerro y Racing, as well as the Uruguayan Players' Association." The teams "believe that there is a 'criminal organization' within CONMEBOL that, through the way TV rights, advertising and sponsorship for the Copa Libertadores are being commercialized, is taking money that should be going to the clubs and players" (EFE, 2/28).
