Spain: Shakira rejects prosecutors’ offer, faces tax trial

Colombian pop vocalist Shakira has picked to go to preliminary as opposed to tolerating an arrangement presented by Spanish examiners to settle claims she cheated Spain’s administration of 14.5 million euros ($15 million) in charges, her advertising group said Wednesday.

Shakira, 45, “confides in her honesty and decides to leave the issue in the possession of the law,” the advertising firm Llorente y Cuenca said in an explanation.

Spanish examiners charged the artist in 2018 with neglecting to pay 14.5 million euros in charges on pay procured somewhere in the range of 2012 and 2014. She faces a potential fine and jail sentence, whenever viewed as at real fault for tax avoidance.

There were no quick subtleties accessible on the arrangement investigators advertised. No date for the preliminary has been set.

Shakira’s PR firm said she has saved the sum she is said to owe to the Spanish Tax Agency and has no forthcoming expense obligations.
The case relies on where she resided during 2012-14. Examiners affirm it was for the most part in Spain, despite the fact that Shakira’s true home was in the Bahamas.

The craftsman, whose complete name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, has two kids with Barcelona soccer star Gerard Piqué. The couple used to live respectively in that oceanside city however as of late cut off their 11-year friendship.
