Footballer Lionel Messi and Dad investigated for tax fraud in Spain

 

Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi and his father are being investigated in Spain for allegedly defrauding the state of more than 4m euros (£3.4m).

The 25-year-old Argentina forward and his father, Jorge Horacio, are suspected of filing fraudulent tax returns for 2007-09, officials say. The World Player of the Year expressed his surprise, denying the allegation.

His Barcelona net salary is said to be some 16m euros a year, making him one of the world's highest-paid athletes.
He has also signed a number of multimillion-dollar endorsements with major sponsors around the globe.  But does that really stops them from defrauding? evn if it is 100,000.... To me he can.
