Top referee Bart Vertenten remains held. That has his lawyer confirmed at the exit of the courthouse in Tongeren. Thursday was Vertenten all together with his colleague Sebastien Delferiere suspended by the belgian football association.
With the leave of the court wanted lawyer Johnny Maeschalck not much to lose. “My client has been detained for further investigation and we will have to wait now.” More comments, he would not give. Vertenten is accused of being a member of a criminal organisation and corruption.
In Tongeren, are the interrogations still working. That will have the whole night to complete, so it sounds from the on-site lawyers. Another five defendants have to for 6 hours Friday morning appear before the judge.
