LIGUE 1 - Saint-Étienne files a complaint against the Cambodian prince
While the candidates for the takeover of ASSE had until Monday to send their offers, the Saint-Etienne club decided to file a complaint against the Cambodian prince Norodom Ravichak, with the public prosecutor of Paris for "facts of forgery , forgery and attempted fraud ”.
Information revealed through a press release from the club. Candidate in this process of sale of ASSE, Norodom Ravichak is accused of having provided a "false" financial guarantee document of 100 million euros from a large international bank. The club also specifies that "This process (editor's note: entrusted to the KPMG cabinet since April) has made it possible to highlight the lack of credibility of certain candidates."
If the Greens miraculously won their first victory of the season, Sunday afternoon, against Clermont (3-2), the institutional situation of the Forez club also remains very fragile.
As such, Bernard Caïazzo and Roland Romeyer would also have revised downward the amount of the resale of the Greens, now estimated between 12 and 20 million euros. Anyway, the club specifies, finally, that "the shareholders intend to continue the process of sale in order to sell the club to an investor representing all the pledges of seriousness and the financial surface necessary to give to ASSE the means of its legitimate ambitions.”
