5 men to face court over Chelsea fans' incident in Paris
Mar. 11, 2015
LONDON (AP) — British police will ask a court to ban five men accused of being involved in a racist incident from traveling to football matches.
Chelsea supporters were filmed singing a racist song and refusing to let a black man on a Paris subway train ahead of a Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain last month.
The Metropolitan Police in London now says it has served summons on five men involved in the incidents to appear at a court on March 25.
Police have applied for football banning orders to be imposed on the men. Such orders can last between three and 10 years to prevent unruly fans going to games in Britain or abroad.
