Shakira who is closer to trial for tax fraud

Justice dismissed the appeal filed by the Colombian star Shakira to file the case against her for the alleged tax fraud of 14.5 million euros (15.5 million dollars) to the Spanish Treasury and left the singer more near the trial.

The Provincial Court of Barcelona did not accept the request of Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, full name of the artist, who requested the file of the investigation alleging that during the fiscal years claimed (from 2012 to 2014) she did not reside in Spain, but in the Bahamas.

For the court, however, “with the data available, it can be considered that the appellant was habitually resident in Spain,” according to the order made public this Thursday.

To reach this conclusion “sporadic absences would also be computable in order to determine whether or not they have remained in Spanish territory for 183 days or more, since the documentation provided does not seem sufficient to prove tax residence in another country,” he adds.
