Shakira criticizes "the methods of the Treasury" after paying more than 90 million

He accuses her of not having "at all taken into account what is the modus vivendi of artists"


The singer Shakira has criticized "the methods of the Treasury after paying more than 90 million euros and being persecuted even for years in which she did not spend even 60 days in Spain", and is confident that her innocence will be proven after the trial.

According to a statement from the artist's communication agency, this Friday her lawyer presented the defense brief in the trial that Shakira is facing for allegedly defrauding 14.5 million euros from the Treasury between 2012 and 2014.

"It is unacceptable that, in its accusation, the Public Treasury is not respecting the legal security that must be guaranteed to any taxpayer, nor my fundamental rights," Shakira asserted in the statement, referring to the right to privacy and privacy. presumption of innocence.

The letter maintains that her tax conduct is "impeccable and that she has never had tax problems with any other jurisdiction" and has described the artist's presence in Spanish territory as sporadic during the period investigated.

He reproaches the accusations for using "payments made with a series of credit cards belonging to his team and relatives" to prove Shakira's presence in the country.

He also points out that Spain "represents only 2% of the origin of his world income" and claims to have reliable data that proves his itinerant life.

Thus, the statement makes the Tax Agency ugly for not having "at all taken into account the modus vivendi of artists whose careers develop internationally" and accuses them of turning the oral trial into a sort of media circus to damage the prestige of the singer, as well as using it for exemplary purposes.

The Court of Barcelona will judge the case - investigated in a court of Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona) - and will set a trial date once Shakira's lawyers have presented their defense brief.

According to the judge, Shakira allegedly defrauded the Personal Income Tax (IRPF) --with a total of 12,371,197 euros-- and the Wealth Tax (IP) --2,191,771 euros--, adding between the two a total of 14,562,968 euros.

The Instruction found that the artist allegedly stopped paying taxes in Spain in 2012, 2013 and 2014 despite being obliged to do so because, according to the judge, it is where she had her fiscal residence, since she had been in the country for more than 183 days per year. year, while Shakira claims to have resided in the Bahamas.

The Prosecutor's Office demands a sentence of eight years and two months in prison; the State Attorney accuses him of three crimes against the Treasury in the personal income tax declarations of 2012, 2013 and 2014, and the Generalitat, of three crimes against the Treasury in the declaration of the Wealth Tax of the same years.
