BARCELONA, 8 May. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Prosecutor’s Office has requested the filing of a new case opened against Shakira for two alleged tax crimes, after in November 2023 she accepted a three-year prison sentence for tax fraud, although she did not go to prison.

In a statement this Wednesday, the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of Barcelona, ‚Äč‚ÄčSpecialized Section for Economic Crimes, has requested the filing of the proceedings against the singer in the Investigative Court 2 of Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona).

This court was investigating the alleged commission of two crimes against the Public Treasury for the Personal Income Tax and the Wealth Tax for the year 2018 and, as requested by Shakira’s lawyer, the public ministry requests the file considering that “there is not sufficient evidence of the commission of crimes”.

It is understood that if there is a tax obligation corresponding to that year, “they can be made effective” in the AEAT and in the Tax Agency of Catalonia through administrative means.

At the end of last year, Shakira’s defense reached an agreement with the accusations at the doors of her trial in the Barcelona Court, with which the artist recognized a fraud of 14.5 million euros to the Treasury between 2012 and 2014, an agreement with which he managed to avoid going to prison.
