But this says otherwise. They dont have to prove what games were rigged.bribing the head of the refs absolutely deserves punishment, but the point of the trial is to highlight what the money was for. Is it for money laundering? Which would carry its own punishment. If it’s for getting an advantage over the rest of the league and giving Barca favor over the rest of the league that is a different/more serious punishment.
The instructor of the Negreira case, Judge Joaquín Aguirre, has just issued an order in which he maintains that FC Barcelona's payments to the former vice-president of the Technical Committee of Referees (CTA) José María Enríquez Negreira would constitute an alleged bribery crime, a criminal type that does not require proving the adulteration of specific matches and that contemplates more serious sentences than the crime of corruption between individuals that was attributed until now to those investigated.
