Munich, Wednesday 15 September 2010:
FC Bayern München AG has today pressed charges with the München I public prosecutor’s office against Peter Limacher and Robin Boksic, employees of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).
The club has acted as a result of an article published by stern magazine website stern.de (Uefa vertraut Hochstapler, “Uefa trusts conman”) in its edition dated Thursday 16 September. The article reports that the two individuals concerned have discredited clubs, associations and individuals involved in professional football, including FC Bayern München, with gross falsehoods and defamatory statements. The claims uncovered by stern are monstrous and must be severely penalised accordingly.
FC Bayern München AG will do everything in its power to cause the individuals concerned to answer to the courts, and has initiated the measures outlined above to this end.
Furthermore, FC Bayern München has today called upon UEFA President Michel Platini to clarify his position with regard to these defamatory statements and offer an explanation without delay. FC Bayern München further expects immediate action with regard to the continued employment of Peter Limacher and Robin Boksic.
