Former Australian cricketer Stuart MacGill gained all the limelight last month when it was learned that the leg-spinner was kidnapped from a street near his home. The leg-spinner finally broke his silence on the issue as he revealed the hardships faced by him and his family due to the entire kidnapping issue.
MacGill asserted that he and his partner Maria have done nothing wrong and are innocent in the entire episode. The cricketer also denied the rumour of his involvement in the alleged cocaine supply deal being in the works when he introduced his girlfriend’s brother Marino Sotiropoulos to an associate known as Sonny.
The spinner added that they introduce people to each other all the time as a part of socializing and there is no personal benefit in that.
“I know that I have done nothing wrong, Maria has done nothing wrong. If people choose to think something contrary to what’s been presented by both myself and the police, then that’s up to them,” Mr. MacGill told Channel Nine’s A Current Affair in an interview that aired on Monday night.
“We consider ourselves to be the innocent parties in this one. Part of hospitality is making sure the room works. We introduce people to other people all the time,” he told the program. We introduce people to other people as a matter of building, generating a bit of heat around the venue and that’s pretty much all you need to know.” he added.
It is learned that there was a deal between Marino and Sonny regarding the supply of cocaine but Marino suffered a loss due to Sonny. Thus, he demanded $150,000 in compensation from Mr. MacGill because of his matchmaking role. It is reported that Marino has told police that Stuart knew about the deal and was benefiting from the deal between him and Sonny.
