Redknapp and Mandaric WILL face trial

Things had gone quiet, but for a reason, as a ban on reporting on details of the case had been in place but as of 2.30pm on Saturday Judge Anthony Leonard QC ruled that the 'ban on reporting details of the proceedings could be lifted'...

Surely you do not need me to say what the ban had been lifted on?

Well, if you do it is about the tax evasion charges for Harry Redknapp and Milan Mandaric.

Some mutterings filtering through were thought to be saying that no trial would be faced by any, but this will not be the case, as these two will stand trial in the New Year.

Redknapp is alleged to have had payments of almost $300,000 paid into a bank account in Monaco by Mandaric between 2002 and 2007, payments that would have avoided the need for income tax and national insurance payments...

Both have been charged, although each denied these charges, and they will stand trial at Southwark Crown Court on January 23rd 2012, this will last for 2-weeks.

There is not anything relating to Storrieteller, so it would 'seem' that he has no charges to face?

It would appear that Storrieteller has already been to court and his sentence is being held over until after the Redknapp/Mandaric trial. He has been told he can expect a custodial sentence. Don't know how true this is, have just read it on the Vital Spurs site. Might do some digging, if I can be bothered.

Well I did bother - you never thought I wouldn't, did you?!? I can't find anything other than what I have read on the Vital Spurs site. This was posted by Spursex, who I think is a pretty reliable source. He refers to Storrie's "contempt of court trial". Given that there have been reporting restrictions on this matter up until now, I suppose it is possible.

I'm a great fan of Harry as a football manager, but if he's joined the rich bitch club to cheat the rank and file honest tax-paying public then I hope he gets a custodial sentence.

150,000 odd so what 50% tax so that's 75,000 evaded! That's a hell of alot to me and you but for Harry was it really worth it!? 75,000 must just be what a few months wages for him? Silly!

If proven guilty he'll probably get a fine! That wouldn't effect his lifestyle and that will be it!

Yes, but Pompnut, it wasn't just 150,000 - thats all that the IR feel they are able to prove in court, they investigated a lot lot more than that.

Most Pompey fans were suspicious of the "HR" management era, but were happy while they were convinced they had the best interests of the club at heart. As Gandor points out, they did not. They were crooks lining their own pockets at the clubs expense. The common factor between them all, including Gaynamac, was Storrie. The writer of contracts that perpetuated this continuous milking of the clubs assets. Now it would appear the evil past is behind us. For me as an "Oldie" I would like local business people to own the club we all love. But in a modern world that is asking too much.

Unfortunately, 007, Portsmouth is not a wealthy City, which is a shame. But yes, a local someone with passion for Pompey and of course, lots of cash, is the ideal person to own a football club. I think the reason I have such an inbred dislike of Redknapp is because when he left, that was my very first disillusionment with football. Up until then, I thought we were all on the same side, in it for the same reasons. What a shock I've had since!

Im with you Russellm, the sooner we get rid of the stench left behind by these 3 villians the better. My mate is a big West Ham fan, and HR & PS still makes him vomit when you mention their names. They have a legacy that follows them around. I hope they get what they deserve, a jail term, and PFC can shed the tainted name they have given us.
