Following the announcement of Mason Greenwood’s re-arrest by the UK Police, Manchester United issued a statement.
Manchester United, a Premier League team, issued a statement on Saturday, October 15, 2022, in response to the news of Mason Greenwood’s re-arrest by UK authorities.
Mason Greenwood was originally detained in January 2022 on charges of rape and assault. He was later detained again for breaking the terms of his bail. In a recent statement, the UK prosecution also affirmed that Mason Greenwood would also be formally charged.
In a formal statement, Janet Potter, the deputy chief crown prosecutor for CPS North West, disclosed:
“The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Mason Greenwood, 21, with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. All three counts relate to the same complainant.
Specialist rape prosecutors from CPS North West’s complex casework unit authorised the charges following a review of a file of evidence received from Greater Manchester Police.”
Manchester United has officially announced that Mason Greenwood is still barred from participating in any club activities while the investigation is ongoing.
Manchester United notes that criminal charges have been brought against Mason Greenwood by the Crown Prosecution Service. He remains suspended by the club, pending the outcome of the judicial process.
