Statement in relation to AS Roma fan Filippo Lombardi

I have been instructed to act as Counsel for Mr Filippo Lombardi. He has been remanded in custody awaiting a plea hearing on 24th May 2018. Mr Lombardi’s solicitors have made contact with the prison as they are aware that his family and friends have concerns about his safety while he is being held in prison.

Understandably, this incident has caused a great deal of both national and International attention, and media interest. However, at this early stage of legal proceedings it would be inappropriate and unprofessional for either myself or Mr Lombardi’s solicitors to provide any information, which is not already in the public domain, about the incident itself, or the criminal charges Mr Lombardi is facing.

If, at any stage, we consider that it is appropriate to provide further information about the case it will be released via this blogsite.
