Wednesday have issued a statement this evening, revealing that the EFL has dropped charges against club owner Dejphon Chansiri, finance director John Redgate and former chief executive Katrien Meire … but charges against the club itself will progress to a hearing.
The statement said:
‘The EFL has written to the Club and informed it that the EFL has dropped all of the charges it issued against Mr Chansiri, Ms Meire and Mr Redgate on 14 November 2019.
Each of the individuals considers this a vindication of their defence of the charges. In the Club’s view, this decision is a recognition of the strength of the evidence that the Club has filed before league arbitration panels, which demonstrated that there was no proper basis for the charges.
The charges against the Club will proceed to a hearing and the Club will continue to vigorously defend those charges. No further comment will be made at this stage.’
