Lionel Messi is accused for tax evasion starting from 2007 to 2009

It seems that Lionel Messi is accused for tax evasion starting from 2007 to 2009, with the help of a specialized company which has bank accounts in Belize, Uruguay and Switzerland. New details appeared in this case for tax evasion in which it involves Lionel Messi and his father.

The Swiss press discovered a mailbox which belongs to the Spanish star from Barcelona. His ex financial councilor turned him down to authorities.

Meanwhile, Messi’s image suffered a lot. It`s the first scandal in which is involved one of the best football players in the football history.

Everything started in 2005 when Messi started a lot of money in Barcelona. His father hired Rodolfo Schinocca to take care of his financial issues, but the contract was terminated in 2006 and Messi’s family accused Shinocca for embezzlement. Messi sued him and won.

It remains unkown if Messi knew about the 730 000 CHF fraud which bypassed the taxes from Spain. If he would have known, the Spanish football player would have been imprisoned between two and six years!

The Swiss press claims that if Messi admits what he has done, we won`t go to jail but he will have to pay a big fine. “We did not commit fraudulent actions and we have paid our taxes as our financial company advised us. We will soon clarify the situation”.

If Messi will be guilty, he will join other football players such as Maradona, Boris Becker or Steffi Graf who had similar problems.

About 4,5 million euros is the prejudice estimated by prosecutors. Messi earns annually approximately 19 million euros from publicity and Barcelona is paying 15 million of the sum. Normally, Messi could be imprisoned between two and six years or he may risk to pay 24 million euros for justice, six time the prejudice. In Spain, sums lower than 125.000 euro is sanctioned with only a fine.
