Arrest Order for Joorabchian

A Brazilian judge has ordered the arrest of Kia Joorabchian after a two-year investigation into accusations of money laundering in Brazil. He is accused of participating in a money-laundering racket involving the Brazilian club, Corinthians.

A number of papers, The Mail and The Times being the worst, have been happy to print Joorabchian's accusation that he has damning evidence against West Ham as if his every word was gospel and he had no interest in Tevez's transfer to Man Utd.

You might expect that now The Times and The Mail might think twice about printing his fantasies. However I suspect that as of today they will start laying into West Ham for having dealings with such a man.

In a not completely unrelated matter, Sheffield Utd have their day in court this morning as they break the FA's rule that all sides must agree to abide by the decision of an arbitration panel.

Friday 13th. Unlucky for some. Poor old Kia. I knew he was as honest as the day is long.
