New Calciopoli ban for Moggi

Disgraced former Juventus director Luciano Moggi and seven ex-referees have been suspended in the second Calciopoli trial into a private mobile phone network.

Moggi has been given a 14-month ban for his part in the scandal, accused of creating a system of private telecommunications between directors and members of the Italian Referees' Association (AIA) in 2004-05.

He achieved this, argued the Disciplinary Commission, by buying up and handing out SIM cards from Switzerland to avoid the Italian authorities.

Former Messina director Mariano Angelo Fabiani has been banned for four years, while referees Tiziano Pieri, Salvatore Racalbuto, Stefano Cassara, Antonio Dattilo, Paolo Bertini, Marco Gabriele and Marcello Ambrosino are suspended for 18 months.

Ex-referee Massimo De Santis receives a six-month ban, but Gianluca Paparesta has been cleared.
