“He was the one who could help you move to the next level”, confirmed several referees in particular, to the Josimar media. A victim of the referee’s sexual blackmail says: “He carefully chose the referees that he could try to drag into his game. If you took the bait, he would start offering you stuff.

According to Facebook messages at the time, and recovered by Romain Molina, Galletti offered “masturbations” and “blowjobs” to the young referee if he wanted a good report. The former head of referees in Paris was even ready to pay a 16-year-old referee €1,000 to achieve his goals.
