Simon Wiesenthal Center Withdraws Accusations Against Legia Warsaw

Author: Legia Warsaw
After Legia Warsaw's intervention, Simon Wiesenthal Center withdrew its call to sanction our Club for the events in Sochocin. Earlier, Hapoel Petah Tikva published a retraction of their false claims regarding the incident.

Simon Wiesenthal Center published an update of their statement in the official website (read it here):


"Following an attack on members of Israel’s Hapoel Petah Tikva soccer team, the Simon Wiesenthal Center issued the following updated statement:


- While the SWC remains deeply concerned about the anti-Semitic attack against members of an Israeli football team following a recent match with MKS Ciechanow in Poland, despite claims by the victims, it now appears that no one connected to the team Legia Warsaw or its supporters were involved - said Dr. Shimon Samuels, SWC International Relations Director. - The Center apologizes to the team and withdraws its call for football authorities to sanction Liega Warsaw - he added."




Hapoel Petah Tikva's version of events led the Simon Wiesenthal Center to publicly repeat in their official statements those unfounded accusations against Legia Warsaw.


On Saturday, in their correspondence with Legia Warsaw, Hapoel Petah Tikva admitted that their accusations were solely unfounded speculations based on the loose comments of several accidental witnesses.


After the intervention of Legia Warsaw, Hapoel Petah Tikva have published a retraction of their earlier false claims.
