Shakira has deposited in court the 6.6 million euros that the Prosecutor’s Office demands from her in her second case for alleged fraud against the Treasury, judicial sources have explained to Europa Press.

This deposit will be deposited in the court until the case is resolved and will serve to cover any financial liabilities determined by the court, as ‘El PeriĆ³dico’ announced this Friday.

The aforementioned sources have indicated that Shakira made the deposit at the end of August, and it was known this week after on Monday the singer acknowledged a fraud to the Treasury of 14.5 million euros between 2012 and 2014, for which in addition to To return the defrauded fees, he agreed to pay a fine of 7.3 million and three years in prison that he will not serve in exchange for paying another 432,000 euros.

In this second case of Shakira for alleged fraud, still in the investigation phase in the courts of Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona), the Prosecutor’s Office claims a debt of 6,686,502 euros with the 2018 declaration of the Personal Income Tax (IRPF) and the Wealth Tax (IP).

The complaint from the prosecutor that originated this second case highlights that, being a resident in Spain, Shakira was obliged to pay taxes on all of her worldwide income regardless of where it occurred and what the residence of the payer was.

Instead, she “used a corporate framework, diverting income to companies domiciled in countries with low taxation and high opacity” to avoid paying the total amount due to her for these taxes.
