José Eduardo Simões loses his mandate at the AG of the Federation


THE table of the General Assembly of the Portuguese Football Federation communicated yesterday loss of mandate of delegate of the former president of Académica / OAF, José Eduardo Simões, in that organism.
After having been convicted in 2013 of committing a crime of passive corruption, José Eduardo Simões was accepted as a candidate for a delegate for a term of office from 2016-2020, since it was understood at the time that the offense had not been committed in the sports field.
However, Opinion No. 32/2017, dated 01/19/2018, of the Attorney General's Office (PGR), understood in paragraph 2 (a) that "the offense by which that mr. Delegate was convicted, it was committed "in context" and "in the sporting arena", so "criminal conviction … should be considered as belonging to the sporting sphere, even if it is common passive corruption and not against sporting truth", consequently, Mr. Delegate, in case of ineligibility ".
