Chelsea FC Statement Following UK Sanctions On Abramovich

Chelsea FC Statement Following UK Sanctions On Abramovich

Chelsea Football Club have released a statement following the news that owner Roman Abramovich has been placed on the list of sanctions by the UK government.

The Russian listed his Club for sale on March 2, but now this has been thrown into doubt after the government announced that it was freezing his assets.

In a statement, seen by Pindula News, Chelsea FC  said they have been given a special licence to continue with football-related activities but the sale effectively bars the sale of the club following Roman Abramovich’s sanctioning.

Posted on the official Chelsea website, the Club have released the following statement:

Chelsea Football Club has been advised that its owner Roman Abramovich has been sanctioned by the UK Government.

By virtue of his 100 per cent ownership of Chelsea FC plc and affiliated entities, Chelsea FC would normally be subject to the same sanctions regime as Mr Abramovich. However, the UK Government has issued a general licence that permits Chelsea FC to continue certain activities.

We will fulfil our men’s and women’s team fixtures today against Norwich and West Ham, respectively, and intend to engage in discussions with the UK Government regarding the scope of the licence. This will include seeking permission for the licence to be amended in order to allow the Club to operate as normal as possible. We will also be seeking guidance from the UK Government on the impact of these measures on the Chelsea Foundation and its important work in our communities.

I wonder where the rule of law went . Arbitrary decisions are being made on the slightest indication of accusations and provocations. Europeans have become the judge , jury , complainany and witness and their verdict is final. How sad...
