During an interview with journalist Vladan Tegeltija, Partizan Belgrade Ostoja Mijailovic has talked about the situation of Rashawn Thomas, who was arrested and released under bail after being accused of drug possession.
“We have had several conversations with his lawyers, who told us that Thomas was driving a car that contained the person who committed the offence. Thomas has paid a misdemeanour sentence and today is free to travel and work anywhere. Notwithstanding we will, in accordance to our rules, sign an annex to the contract that if any further compromising thing happens with the player under a contract with us, Partizan will have a release clause without suffering further damage. We believe that Thomas was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and we are confident that he will justify on the court the honour of wearing Partizan jersey”.
