FAC Launch Fund to aid the Amsterdam 2+

Published on Tuesday 12th November, 2013 by Celtic Trust

Amsterdam Legal Defence and Assistance Appeal


Fans Against Criminalisation have agreed, with the consent of the families, to set up a fund which will be used to assist those Celtic supporters who were beaten, wrongly arrested, falsely accused and remain targets of the Dutch judicial system.  We have a pre-existing legal defence fund which contains funds donated to assist fans caught up in the Offensive Behaviour Act.  Those funds will be ring-fenced and any donations between now and the close of this appeal will be used to assist those supporters caught up in terrible events in Amsterdam.  We do not know, at this stage, how much will be needed, but any amounts donated will be disbursed to the two supporters currently in prison in Amsterdam and those who will have to return there for trial on 21 November.  Any monies left over after their expenses have been met will be transferred to the FAC Legal Defence Fund unless donors specifically ask for them to be returned.  The Fund will be administered by FAC which is made up of the Celtic Supporters’ Association, the Affiliation of Registered Celtic Supporters Clubs, the Association of Irish Celtic Supporters Clubs, the Celtic Trust and the Green Brigade.
