FF in miscommunication with the courts

Does he have legal representation?

ie. Does have a lawyer?

It said in the report that neither the club, the player or Forestieri's legal team knew about the date... so I'm guessing he does.

Cannot believe this thread

 

There is no way - no possible way - that a club would not manage this situation from within. They'd be all over it to ensure a player did not miss a court date and had optimal legal representation

 

Pretty shameful the amount of adverse publicity that it's generated for Forestieri when he's done nothing wrong

 

Also pretty telling that some people cannot hold their hands up and admit they jumped the gun and have been proven wrong

 

From the very start it didn’t make sense.  It would take someone monumentally stupid to ignore a court summons that they knew about. 

 

Not read much of the last ten pages. Not really sure what else there is to say.

Totally agree. Some people made real ***** of themselves, slagging FF off, with no evidence.

Be nice if they were big enough to admit they were wrong

Fair cop. I'd argue whatever went down reactions should not be so unprofessional, but I take your point. 

Well that diffused my angry tirade.

Fair play mate

Tbf, I think Nando should get some sort of an apology. 

 

Last night he was "trending" on Twitter and splashed across mainstream media outlets for having missed a Court date. 

 

Some questions should be asked as to how/why this was leaked to The Star and others.

This ! 

Added to him being labelled a cheat (unjustifiably ) from the ‘diving’ episodes now being (unjustifiably) labelled a racist for not turning up for court he will be wound up and hounded by opposition players and fans ... unjustifiably!

The fans who want to drive him out of our club wont admit anything.

 

They are busy holding grudges and rewriting history

I wouldnt blame the Star. They job to put an angle on a story to make news. 

Not impressed with Mansfield Magistrate Court if they didnt inform FF of the court date.

My guess is they posted it out and got lost somewhere.

 

The Star reported the facts as they were known at the time.  He had a court date and he didn’t attend.  The reasons why weren’t known.  We now know that he wasn’t aware of it, but we don’t know the reason(s) why.

 

It also isn’t the job of the court to inform FF of the court date - the time, date and place would be printed on the summons, which is issued by the police.  It’s looking like he didn’t get the summons

My guess is that you haven't seen the CPS in action lol 

 

The court and the CPS are two separate and independent organisations.

I would, they published a story without knowing all the facts and probably did so just to get a reaction 

 

See above - they published the facts that were known and correct at the time.

The Star is lower than The Beano for being on the ball with quality local news. I wouldn't even line the cats litter tray with it these days.

As of 7.35am today sky news website still reporting there's a warrant out and no mention of the club statement. Not checked if the star have updated their piece.

Thing that gets me though, is why would the stir want to alienate 80% of its potential customers by printing these things lol

So the Courts can't get the paperwork right but can manage to tip off the local rag without a problem.

Seems that way. The story has come from someone and I don't recall seeing random stories about people missing court dates in the news that often. Whoever tipped em off has caused hassle for FF and made the courts look silly. Good work all round.

The authorities do like to get publicity from known people to set an example to the population at large. HMRC love a celebrity tax avoidance case and naming and shaming is part of the ethos of ensuring compliance. 

 

So it doesn't surprise me in the slightest but they should have checked the paperwork first because they now look fools.

 

But yep I watch enough of these police documentaries to wait the end bit where it states the person failed to show up at court

Seems to be all coming from Mansfield doesn't it? I remember watching the youtube clip and even a 9 year old could tell that Mansfield were ganging up on FF long before the incident happened.
