After 83 people received a nation-wide stadium-ban in November, the president of the ultra-group Friburgensis is suing the SIHF.

Fans of HC Fribourg-Gottéron defend themselves.

The lawsuit against the SIHF is "intended to restore the right an honour of the people, whom the federation has accused of various crimes without evidence," the lawyer of the Friburgensis-president explains to the Beobachter. Moreover, he has also filed a civil suit to have the stadium-bans lifted, after several lawyers reportedly demanded evidence from the SIHF without success.

The 83 people from the surroundings of HC Fribourg-Gottéron had received a three-year stadium-ban in November due to rioting before, during, and after the road game against the SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers on September 16. The police of the Canton of Fribourg is still investigating and questioning people.

Whereas the SIHF would not want to comment on the matter, Markus Jungo of the "Polizeiliche Koordinationsplattform Sport" says to the Beobachter that you have to act like this if you want to get the violence under control: "You can't sugarcoat it. There are always problems, especially on the road." Critics, however, say that collective punishments like these are not acceptable.
