Charlton face EFL investigation
Written by admin
Charlton owner Tahnoon Nimer says he intends to “co-operate fully” with an EFL 

Investigation into the club’s takeover by East Street Investments, which has cast fresh doubt on the Addicks’ future.

The EFL wrote to Nimer and former executive chairman Matt Southall — who was faraway from the board in March following a bitter war — 

last Thursday to request information about the £1 takeover from Roland Duchatelet in January.

Nimer, who remains yet to satisfy EFL requests for proof and source of funding, said on Tuesday morning: 

“I can confirm that I even have received correspondence from the EFL 

and that i have already provided an initial response and shall co-operate fully with them so as to make sure clarity on this matter.”

Southall also confirmed to plain Sport his intention to co-operate.

The duo have until 4pm on Wednesday to supply the EFL with documents concerning the takeover 

and therefore the timeline of events regarding the transfer of shares and roles taken within the running of the club.

An EFL statement read: “The EFL have commenced formal investigations to determine whether breaches of EFL 

regulations and or other misconduct occurred in reference to the takeover of Charlton Athletic in January 2020.”
