River Plate to collaborate with authorities after abuse allegations

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- River Plate say they will collaborate with authorities after a local NGO reported minors were allegedly abused in the club's youth divisions.

The AVIVI Association for Victims of Rape made a formal complaint before a local prosecutor on Monday. AVIVI said the three minors were allegedly abused from 2004-11.

Argentina's La Nacion newspaper reported the complaint was based on information provided by an unnamed doctor who worked at the club for several years.

Officials at River Plate, the NGO, and the prosecutor's office could not be immediately reached for comment.

River Plate said in a brief statement that club officials will go before the prosecutor's office on Tuesday, "to understand the full extent of the complaint and provide authorities and accusers with all elements available to clarify this situation."
