UEFA Riot Appeal

February 11, 2009

The names of 29 men suspected of being involved in rioting at last year’s Uefa Cup final have been given to police.  It comes after images of 49 men were posted on the internet and released through the BBC’s Crimewatch programme. Disorder began before kick-off between Rangers and Zenit St Petersburg in Manchester last May. The resulting violence saw officers and supporters clash in the streets, resulting in a number of injuries and criminal damage (Rangers eventually lost the match 2-0).

After studying hours of CCTV footage, pictures of 49 people police want to trace were placed on the force’s website on Tuesday. The suspects posted on the internet were all involved in violent disorder, with some responsible for assault, criminal damage, looting and a variety of other offences.
