The Gaza Post | The News of Palestine – POZUELO DE ALARCON
Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid player, accused of evading 14.7 million euros (13.19 million pounds) in taxes, arrived at the Pozuelo de Alarcon court on Monday to testify.
The 32-year-old Portuguese has denied all the allegations through his agents.
If found guilty of hiding earnings from his image rights between 2011 and 2014, Ronaldo would face a large fine and a possible custodial sentence.
Spanish courts have recently cracked down on tax evasion among leading footballers.
