Spathas, Dimitropoulos, Kampaksis, Ioannidis and Amparkiolis are the five referees who have already testified before Corruption Prosecutor, Giorgos Andreadis, who set a due date for an apology on football's "crime syndicate". According to "Live Sport", they are charged with bribery and venality. The newspaper's report claims that certain matches are mentioned in the indictment. In all those matches, the referees made serious misjudgments which, according to the prosecutor, were not merely human mistakes.
For example, it has been leaked that regarding Spathas, the indictment mentions his bad refereeing in the Xanthi - Panathinaikos match, but also in the Asteras Tripolis - Olympiakos (the game with the six notorious off-side calls). When it comes to the match at Pigadia (Xanthi), Mr Andreadis refers to a non-penalty which had been awarded to the home team (Koutroumpis's handball)... The referees, from their part, claim that "it is impossible that a ref is brought before Justice for a refereeing decision".
Also rumored is that refs charged for participating the "crime syndication" are wrongly embroiled by a football persona, after a supplementary testimony. With that he is said to have delivered a detailed list of refereeing mistakes made by those who are summonsed or will be summonsed by the Prosecutor.
