Club Financial Control Body Investigatory Chamber

Published: Thursday 2 January 2014, 9.37CET

The work of the Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) is underpinned by the Investigatory Chamber, led by the CFCB chief investigator for the monitoring and investigation stage of the proceedings.

The investigatory chamber consists of the CFCB chief investigator, who heads the CFCB investigatory chamber and takes the necessary measures to guarantee its proper functioning, and at least three other members, including a CFCB deputy chief investigator.

An investigation can be opened ex officio or upon request. The CFCB chief investigator establishes the facts and collects all relevant evidence. He leads the investigation proceedings himself or assigns this role to other member of the investigatory chamber.

At the end of the investigation, the CFCB chief investigator, after having consulted with the other members of the investigatory chamber, may decide to dismiss the case; conclude, with the consent of the defendant, a settlement agreement; or apply, with the consent of the defendant, disciplinary measures limited to a warning, a reprimand or a fine up to a maximum amount of €100,000; or refer the case to the Adjudicatory Chamber.

Further details of the CFCB Investigatory Chamber can be found in the procedural rules governing the UEFA Club Financial Control Body.

The UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) adjudicatory chamber, chaired by José Narciso da Cunha Rodrigues, has taken decisions in the cases of four clubs that had been referred to it by the acting CFCB chief investigator, due to the presence of overdue payables balances The decisions of the CFCB adjudicatory chamber are as follows: FK Ekranas (LTU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next two seasons (i.e. 2015/16 and 2016/17). The club has also been fined €15,000. CFR 1907 Cluj (ROU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next three seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18), unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. In addition, CFR 1907 Cluj has also been fined €150,000. FC Astra Giurgiu (ROU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next three seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18), unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. The club has also been fined €100,000. Bursaspor (TUR): The suspended exclusion imposed by the Court of Arbitration in Sport (CAS) in 2012 comes into effect and Bursaspor is therefore excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next four seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19). The CFCB adjudicatory chamber has now imposed on Bursaspor a further exclusion (i.e. for a different season to the season in which the above-mentioned immediate exclusion applies) from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next four seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19). This new exclusion applies unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. The club has also been fined €100,000, half of which is suspended and will only fall due if the club is not able to prove by the above-mentioned deadline that it has paid the above amount of overdue payables.
