UCL referee released after arrest as part of drugs and prostitution raid

 

Champions League referee Slavko Vincic has been released after he was arrested as as part of a drugs and prostitution raid at a party in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 

 

The Slovenian, who took charge of Manchester City’s European clash with Shakthar Donetsk in November, has spoken about the events after he was allowed to return home on Friday.

The official attended what he claims was an invitation to a business lunch in the Balkan nation of Bijeljina but found himself caught up in the raid and was arrested along with Tijana Maksimovic who police reportedly believe to be the leader of a prostitution ring.

Officers reportedly held nine women and 26 men in total, and seized cocaine, weapons and money.

Vincic was questioned as a witness but then later released but told Slovenian media outlet Vecer he had nothing to do with the group.

‘I found myself on this ranch by chance. I have my own company, I was in Bosnia and Herzegovina for a business meeting. I accepted an invitation to lunch, which turned out to be my biggest mistake. I regret it.

 

 

 

‘I was sitting at a table with my company, all of a sudden the police came and what happened, happened. I have nothing to do with the group that was arrested and detained, nor do my business partners.

‘Yes, they really took us to the police, asked as witnesses, when it turned out that we didn’t even know them, we were able to go.’

The president of the Association of Football Referees of Slovenia, Vlado Sajn , defended the referee, saying: ‘According to the information we gathered from official and unofficial sources, and last but not least from Slavko himself, he is not suspected of anything, no proceedings have been instituted against him.

‘He found himself in this place at the wrong time. He was invited to a party where there was a large group of people – he did not know the vast majority.

‘There was a raid, 15 people were arrested, and all the others were allegedly brought to the police station to testify as witnesses.

‘Slavko is already in Slovenia. I consider this story to be a web of unfortunate circumstances.’

 

As well as taking charge of City’s clash with Shakthar, Vincic refereed Liverpool’s away tie with Napoli during this season’s group stages of the Champions League and has also officiated Europa League matches involving Celtic and Rangers.
