Complaint dismissed by courts following homophobic chanting from PSG fans against Marseille

According to Le Parisien, an official complaint made against PSG fans who participated in homophobic chanting in their match against Marseille has been dismissed by the courts. Les Parisiens were sanctioned by the LFP ordered to close the Auteuil stand at the Parc des Princes for one match. The Ligue 1 champions took the decision not to appeal the sanctions. 

A further complaint was made by the interministerial delegate for Dilcrah, who fight against discrimination, Olivier Klein who filed an official report to the courts after the match. However, this complaint has been dismissed by the courts because of the difficulty in identifying the individuals who participated in the derogatory chanting. 

PSG have been invited to raise a further complaint to help identify the individuals responsible for the homophobic chanting during Le Classique. The French Government’s Minister for Sport, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra has said: “PSG, file a complaint to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice so that they are removed from the stadiums”. It remains to be seen whether PSG will take any further action on the matter.
