It is the end of a long soap opera. The League of Paris-Ile-de-France has ruled on the CAP Charenton affair. The disciplinary committee of the regional body decided to impose a withdrawal of 6 points for the Val-de-Marne pennant team which now occupies the last place in Group A of Regional 3 with a total of – 2 points.
Recall of facts. During the previous season, CAP Charenton had reported appeal by opponents to foreign players without CIT (international transfer certificate), thus winning several matches on the green carpet.
FC Goussainville, Entente SSG and Garges-lès-Gonesse retaliated by accusing the Val-de-Marne club of having benefited from information on their players thanks to the Foot 2000 software only used by certain employees of the FFF, of the League and Districts in order to make evocations and ultimately win matches on green carpet. The Garges-lès-Gonesse club even sent a letter to the Ligue de Paris (regional body) last May to request the demotion of the formation of the 94.
The League of Paris then took up the matter. After hearing the clubs in June, the Appeal Committee in charge of current affairs decided to transmit the file to the regional disciplinary commission because of disturbing elements concerning the obtaining of information by CAP Charenton. The 94 club indicated, for example, to have relied on the LinkedIn site to justify the mention of a player of the SSG Entente.
At the end of October, the disciplinary committee took over the file. It considers today that the CAP Charenton does not bring any new element allowing to explain how the club managed to find with precision the 15 federations left out of the 15 players mentioned in the evocations during the 2019-2020 season. This success rate calls out to the said commission in view of the unreliability of the information collected on the Internet. The court concludes that the CAP Charenton thus benefited from an undue advantage, by diverting the use of the federal software and this for personal ends thus breaking the sporting equity between the club and its adversaries. “We are innocent, we refute this conviction because we did nothing illegal,” said Carlos Couso, president of CAP Charenton, who decided not to appeal the sanction. “The Paris League has shown that CAP Charenton has cheated and obtained confidential information using Foot 2000 even if the sanction remains very lenient,” says Marc Mohamed, the sporting director of the SSG Entente. “They are doing very well,” said Nasser Benramdane, president of FC Goussainville. The Ligue de Paris admitted their guilt but the sanction is not in line with the fault. They clearly distorted the championship! “
