FC Barcelona publish official statement on Bartomeu's arrest

Barcelona have released an official statement regarding Josep Maria Bartomeu and some board members' arrest.

The club have helped the law enforcement bodies conduct an investigation.

The club confirm that they offered the judicial and police authorities cooperation in order to clarify the facts about the investigation.

"FC Barcelona expresses their utmost respect for the legal proceedings in progress and for the principle of presumption of innocence of the persons affected in the framework of these actions," the club added.

Josep Maria Bartomeu has been arrested by the Catalan police amid the BarcaGate case investigation, as per Cadena SER.

Barca's former CEO Oscar Grau, Bartomeu's right-hand man Jaume Masferrer and the former chief officer of judicial affairs at the club Roman Ponti have been arrested too.

Last year, Bartomeu and his henchmen reportedly hired a PR company to create fake accounts on social media in order to denigrate the images of the club's legends like Leo Messi, Xavi, Pep Guardiola and Gerard Pique.
