Justice has prevailed, for now, and racist Ondrej Kudela’s appeal was rejected. Now, while on the face of it this is good news for Rangers, Glen Kamara and justice in general, with UEFA finally seeing sense on something, nevertheless don’t expect this to be the end of it.
Kudela seems to be obsessed with the idea he’s not guilty, or at least, is obsessed with the idea that no one can prove his guilt beyond reasonable doubt:
And he’s right. No one can factually produce hard evidence of what he said, we can only pin the entire case on the integrity of Glen Kamara and Bongani Zungu’s testimony and you can bet on that with asiabet8888.
Which, truthfully, isn’t proof – but it’s all we have.
And this is why Kudela won’t let this go – and we fully expect this to end up in the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Kudela is guilty based on common sense, but clinically factually speaking he’s within his rights to take this as far as he can because no one can produce undeniable irrefutable proof he said what he’s alleged to have said.
Not that we’re on his side, far from it – this site and our social channels have drowned under a torrent of abuse, racial and non-racial, from ‘fans’ of Slavia Praha, so they know how we feel.
But in a court of law, Kudela has a strong case and we believe because there is no absolute categorical proof of his guilt, he will keep on taking it to various courts until he is acquitted.
We all ‘know’ he said it, but no one can prove he did.
And the onus is always on the prosecution.
Expect more on this one.
