The four ultras of PSG arrested on February 1, 2022, for having stolen a tarpaulin belonging to Roazhon Celtic Kop (RCK), a group of ultras from Stade Rennais, were sentenced on Wednesday December 21 to fines of 600 euros, indicates AFP .
One of them will have to pay four euros a day for 150 days, two will have to pay the amount immediately, and the last only received a suspended fine.
They were found guilty of "meeting theft" by the Rennes court.
Originally, they had been indicted for "theft with violence", after the group of Rennes supporters had denounced an "ambush which directly undermines the safety of the family" of the member of the RCK who had the tarpaulin in his car.
Eight to twelve months in prison or suspended sentence had been requested against them.
But the court did not retain the facts of violence and "brought the file back to its normal dimension", as the lawyer for one of the defendants, Me Olivier Pacheu, welcomed.
"It's not a matter of hooliganism," he said.
In February, PSG broke away from these Ultras, considering them as "hooligans, followers of violence".
The four men, aged 30 to 40, were suspected of belonging to Karsud, a group created in 1993 revolving around PSG.
This group has not gone to games since 2017-18, and is "devoted only to street confrontations and theft of equipment", according to the judge.
The defendants all denied belonging to this group and spoke of "a joke that went wrong", acknowledging the theft, "but without violence".
