MADRID---A Barcelona court yesterday sentenced
Lionel Messi and his father to 21 months in prison
for tax fraud, with both sentences likely to be sus-
The court found the Barcelona star and his father,
Jorge Horacio Messi, each guilty of three counts of
defrauding tax authorities of 4.1 million euros ($4.6
In Spain, sentences of less than two years for first
offences are usually suspended, meaning neither
man would go to jail. That decision, however, rests
with the court.
The court also fined Messi 2 million euros and his
father 1.5 million euros.
During the four-day trial last month, Messi and
his father denied any wrongdoing. Both said the
player was unaware of the tax issues that led to the
But the court agreed with the state prosecutor
that Messi and his father did have at least some
knowledge of the corporate structures created to
lower his tax burden in Spain.
Tax inspectors testified that they found evidence
that Messi s father used companies in countries such
as Uruguay, Switzerland and Belize to reduce tax on
the player s income from image rights. Messi s
father said he was told by a legal adviser that the
practice was legal.
The sentence can be appealed.
Barcelona issued a statement to "give all its support
to Leo Messi and his father."
The club said that it "considers that the player (.)
is in no way criminally responsible with regards to
the facts underlined in this case."
"FC Barcelona continues to be at the disposition
of Leo Messi and his family to support him in what-
ever action he decides to take in defense of his
honesty and his legal interests," it said.
The 29-year-old Messi is Argentina s career-lead-
ing scorer with 55 goals in 113 international appear-
ances. But he has lost three Copa America finals
with Argentina---in 2007, 2015 and 2016---and
announced his international retirement after last
month s penalty shootout loss in the final to Chile.
With Barcelona, in contrast, Messi has won four
Champions League titles, three Club World Cup tro-
phies and eight Spanish league titles. The forward
has scored a Spanish league record of 312 goals.
This is just one legal case involving Barcelona s
Earlier this year, Javier Mascherano was handed
a suspended one-year prison sentence for not paying
all his taxes for 2011 and 2012.
Adriano is also being investigated for alleged tax
fraud, while Neymar has had to testify before a judge
because of alleged irregularities involving his transfer
to Barcelona. He and the club are accused of with-
holding the real amount of the transfer fee, in part
to avoid paying the full amount of taxes.
They have denied wrongdoing. (AP)
