Florentino Perez wins court case to silence Spanish newspaper over audio leaks

Baku, October 8, AZERTAC

Florentino Perez has won his court case against Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, preventing them from publishing any further audio material that may compromise the Real Madrid President, according to Football Espana.
In the summer of 2021, audio files were published by El Confidencial in which Perez can be heard speaking with Jose Antonio Abellan over ten years ago. In those conversations, Perez insulted the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho and Iker Casillas, whom Perez referred to as a fraud and a failure.
El Confidencial have been ordered to pay the symbolic fee of a single euro, but have now been prevented from publishing further audio material relating to Perez. The judge ruled as follows:
“The form and the content of the emissions demonstrate that as shown by the acting part, those emissions intended only to undermine the public image of Florentino Perez Rodriguez, presenting him as a false person, a liar, that puts his interests above anyone else within the club that he presides over. And that, in effect, constitutes an illegitimate intromission in his right to honour.”
