Calderón on trial

Villar Mir is still trying to get his hands on Real MadridThe judge who halted the postal vote in the Real Madrid presidential elections last summer, has set a date of January 29th for the trial to resolve the legality or otherwise of the current incumbent, Ramón Calderón. Legal representatives for Calderón, as well as the two other interested parties, Arturo Baldasano and Juan Miguel Villar Mir were all present at today's hearing. The judge expressed the hope that the parties could come to some form of agreement to avoid taking the matter to trial, but it was not to be, as new evidence and witnesses have come forward.

Frankly, the whole affair brings shame upon the club and those who are trying to gain control over it. Just as it was disgraceful that the clearly open to corruption postal vote was not reformed at the recent AGM. Let's hope the trial puts a stop to this once and for all.
