Benfica lawyer Joao Correia went to the TV channel SIC and confirmed that Benfica must be punished for influence peddling.
João Correia made the following statements:
“These emails resulted in an act of corruption, resulted in a traffic of influence, resulted in an illicit pressure on sports agents to favor Benfica? Then at that time Benfica must be punished. “
He subsequently stated the following:
“Corruption, I can assure you there is not. Influence peddling may be interpreted as such in one or two situations ‘
So if even Benfica’s lawyer believes there is influence peddling, we can all expect that justice will be made and Benfica will be punished.
