Guilty As Charged! Brazilian administrative court has found Barcelona soccer star, Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, popularly called Neymar guilty of tax evasion between 2012-1014. This news is coming a month after a court froze £32m worth of his assets, which included a private jet, yacht and properties in Brazil. The 24 year-old failed to pay tax in Brazil on his earnings from former club Santos as well as Barcelona and Nike endorsements between 2011-13. He concealed £11m in taxes between those three years.
In its ruling, the federal court judge in Rio de Janeiro included £25m in interest and fines.
‘We studied the information regarding the tax case in question, Neymar, the three businesses and his business partners (parents of the player) and we found that there were fraudulent business practices,’ Develly Claudia Montez, who performed the audit for the court wrote.
