Shakira, relentless against the Treasury
Last July, it was made public that the Barcelona Public Prosecutor’s Office ask for eight years and two months in prison for the singer, whom he accuses of six crimes against the Public Treasury for defrauding the Treasury of 14.5 million euros between 2012 and 2014, pretending that he did not reside in Spain.
Something that the one from Barranquilla denies: “First of all, I did not spend 183 days a year at all. I was busy fulfilling my professional commitments around the world. Even during the following years I was traveling the world, working non-stop while I was pregnant or with Milan as a baby, when I was still healing from my C-section. Second, I paid everything they said I owed, even before they filed a lawsuit. So I don’t really owe them anything.”
He also claims to have “sufficient evidence” to support his case and the “confidence of having done things in the most correct and transparent way from day one.” “The tax authorities saw that she was dating a Spanish citizen and began to salivate. It is clear that they wanted to go after that money no matter what,” she said.
