Prosecutors want further relegations

Italian football federation (FIGC) prosecutors are demanding that AC Milan be fined 10,000 euros (US$13,000) and Serie A side Reggina and second division outfit Arezzo be relegated as part of the second part of the match-fixing scandal.

The case against the three clubs had been adjourned after being brought before the courts at the beginning of the month.

FIGC prosecutor Stefano Palazzi demanded that AC Milan be fined and one of the Milanese club's former directors Leonardo Meania be suspended for three months for allegedly turning a blind eye to irregularities during a second division match between Arezzo and Salernitana during the 2004-05 season.

As part of the same inquiry AC Milan has already been deducted eight points for next season and demoted from second to third place for the 2005-06 season, and Meani suspended for five months.

Palazzi also demanded that Arezzo be relegated to the third division, and given a three-point penalty, as well as a five-year suspension for linesman Stefano Titomanlio and Gennaro Mazzei, a former FIGC official in charge of choosing linesmen, who is charged with conditioning matches.

Palazzi is also demanding that Reggina be demoted to the Serie B and given a 15-point penalty
