Steaua owner Becali jailed for three years

21 May 2013 10:50

Steaua Bucharest owner George Becali has been jailed for three years in Romania for abuse of power in his role as an MP.

Becali has been the majority shareholder at Steaua since 2003 but was sent to trial as an accomplice in what prosecutors described as 'qualified office abuse against the public interest in a repeated manner'.

The 54-year-old was accused of receiving 30 hectares of farmland from the country's Ministry of Defence and was sentenced alongside former officials Victor Babiuc and Dumitru Cioflina, who were each given two-year prison terms.

Becali was also ordered to pay damages and accumulated interest to the state.

Under Becali's ownership Steaua have won three league titles, one Romanian Cup and a Romanian Super Cup, as well as qualifying for European competition in nine consecutive seasons.

A statement on the club's official website said the staff and players "will support the family of Mr Becali during this difficult time."
