The sports club has reached an agreement with the Attorney General and the State Bar in supporting the commission of two tax offenses in hiring Neymar. This pact exempt from any criminal liability to natural persons involved in the trial conducted by the Court of Instruction 22 of Barcelona. Thus, criminal liability would rest on the Barca entity as a legal person, who must assume the payment of 5.5 million euros as a penalty.
Barca have defrauded 9.3 million euros to finance declare as wages and not providing certain services amounts paid to companies related to the Brazilian star. The monetary fine would represent 60% of the amount allegedly defrauded, but note that the sports organization paid 13.5 million euros in a supplementary statement. The agreement between the parties must be ratified by the competent judicial authority in the trial phase.
