Even if the CCTV images of the Stade de France have been erased, the UEFA investigation could rely on videos provided by the SNCF.
There are many images of the incidents that took place on the sidelines of the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid on May 28. Even though the Stade de France CCTV data was automatically erased after a weekbecause French justice did not see fit to seize it, the independent investigation launched by UEFA will be able to rely on the images provided by the SNCF.
The Daily Mail thus ensures that the SNCF, which manages the operation of the RER D, has kept the video data. ” In particular, CCTV images are deleted after three days. In the case of the Stade de France events, the automatic erasure of data was blocked and the images were retained, as permitted by French law for a period of 30 days. »
These images could shed light on the incidents that occurred at the exit of the RER D, when many Liverpool supporters say they were attacked on the way to the Stade de France.
The English press does not give up
The English press is still very active on the subject of the Stade de France. In recent days, The Times has revealed that Amélie Oudéa-Castera, the Minister for Sport, has written to Liverpool supporters apologizing. ” We regret that some of them had to witness scenes that have no place in a sporting event at all, especially since we are aware that this may have brought back particularly painful memories of the history of your club“, wrote the minister, in particular with reference to the drama of Hillsborough.
UEFA officials wanted to issue a statement before the end of the delayed match between Liverpool and Real Madrid to highlight the role of local thugs in the carnage which saw fans, including women and children, indiscriminately gassed before the match in Paris, writes the Daily Mail. European football’s governing body, however, has been ordered to remove any such reference as French authorities have instead sought to blame only Liverpool supporters. » A version of the facts at least truncated, if not completely misleading.
