Motion text

That this House notes the unfurling of a 90 metre long banner by Legia Warsaw football fans in a match against Israeli team Hapoel Tel Aviv last month emblazoned with the words Jihad Legia; further notes this was not the first time the banner had been used; condemns the fans who brought the banner into the stadium; further notes the unsatisfactory findings of Polish prosecutors that the case was offensive but not criminal; believes the act was distasteful and offensive and requires further action; calls on UEFA to punish Legia Warsaw when it addresses the matter on 17 November 2011; and further calls on the Football Association to raise the matter with UEFA at the earliest opportunity in relation to planning for the Euro 2012 football tournament.

There are no withdrawn signatures for this motion.
