Cristiano Ronaldo Appears In Court On Tax Charges

Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has appeared at a Spanish court where he is facing allegations he evaded millions in tax.He appeared this morning.

Prosecutors accuse Ronaldo of evading €14.7m ($17.3m; £13.1m) in tax.

The Real Madrid star, 32, has previously denied the allegations, saying his “conscience is clear”.

Ronaldo is the latest in a string of footballers to be pursued by the Spanish tax authorities.

Argentina’s Lionel Messi, who plays for Barcelona, was handed a 21-month prison sentence after being found guilty of the same charge last year.

Earlier this month, the court ruled he could pay €252,000 in place of jail time.

However, Messi was only accused of evading €4.1m in tax, €10.6m less than Ronaldo.

Ronaldo spent an hour-and-a-half giving evidence to judges at a court in the Madrid suburb of Pozuelo de Alarcón.

Immediately after his pre-trial hearing, he left without saying a word o journalists.
