Leyton Orient Trust - Early Day Motion
Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:48

Message from LOFT

Our local MP and External Director of the Fans Trust has tabled this Early Day

That this House notes with deep concern that a winding-up order has been served
on Leyton Orient FC by HM Revenue and Customs due to non-payment of taxes by the
club's owner, Francesco Becchetti; further notes Mr Becchetti's highly dubious
business record, including a criminal investigation by the Albanian Government,
and his incompetent stewardship of Leyton Orient FC; notes that a venerable and
well-known community football club is now under threat; and calls on the
Government to enforce a genuine fit and proper person test, ensuring that any
prospective or current club owner's ability and willingness to pay creditors is
robustly checked on a regular basis.

Hopefully we can put yet more pressure on the powers that be

Can you all encourage your local MPs to sign this please

Doug Harper


Perhaps also a warning to other clubs to carry out thorough checks on potential 'investors', BEFORE signing their Club away, rather than be driven by the signs.
