Fascist salute fine

Italian Serie A side Lazio has ordered 16 fans caught making fascist salutes at a home game to contribute to paying a fine imposed by UEFA over the incident. Italian sports paper Corriere dello Sport said individual letters had been sent to the fans banning them for three matches and demanding a contribution to financial losses incurred by the club. Lazio said the letters were “authentic” after a photograph of one letter appeared in several news outlets. Lazio was fined 20,000 euros by European football’s governing body after home fans were caught on video making fascist salutes during the Europa Cup tie against Rennes on October 3. A section of the Stadio Olympico stand was closed for the next home Europa tie, reducing ticket sales income.
