Two former Osasuna presidents charged with corruption
BARCELONA, Spain -- Two former presidents of Spanish football club Osasuna and another four ex-board members have been charged following a match-fixing investigation.
The regional court of northern Navarra says a judge has charged former club presidents Miguel Archanco and Patxi Izco and ex-board members Txuma Peralta, Angel Vizcay, Juan Pascual and Diego Maquirriain with misappropriation of funds, false accounting, falsifying documents and corruption.
Peralta was denied bail, Archanco's bail was set at 500,000 euros and the other four were released.
All six were arrested over the previous two days as part of an investigation into the disappearance of at least 2.4 million euros from the club's coffers between November 2013 and June 2014.
Court number two of Pamplona, the capital of the province of Navarra, confirmed Thursday it was investigating Osasuna for match-fixing after Spain's Professional Football League filed a lawsuit.
