Harry Maguire will be given the chance to clear his name over allegations of assault and bribery despite suggestions the case may never return to court in Greece.
Maguire’s retrial was delayed again earlier this month due to a strike by Greek lawyers. It will now take place on March 25, 2025, four and a half years after he was arrested in Mykonos on suspicion of assaulting police officers and attempted bribery following an alleged fight on a family holiday.
The 30-year-old Manchester United defender, who strenuously denies the allegations, was found guilty and sentenced to a 21-month suspended prison sentence, but the verdict was automatically overturned on appeal.
Announcing the latest delay, a Syros judicial official suggested time could be running out to hold the retrial before the August 2028 deadline, saying: “At this rate, Maguire may have retired from professional football by the time he receives a summons.” “.
“After eight years, the statute of limitations takes effect. If the case has not been heard by then, it will be voided.”
