New twist on Neymar’s signing case

A new step on Neymar’s case has complicated Barça and its former and current chairman even more.

The prosecutor demands seven years in jail for Rosell and two for Bartomeu, the current Barça’s president. But he is not only demanding this. The club as corporate body is also fined with 22 Million Euros.

The charges are fraud and corporate crime when they signed Neymar. Prosecutors writ explains how Rosell and Bartomeu created an infrastructure to sign Neymar and then show the memberships non-real numbers of the operation.

The club made an statement in which claimed that the prosecutor’s demands are disproportioned because they think that all this case is about tax crimes and not penal so jail demands have no sense. They also alleged that this writ and the previous ones, came to light after a big Barça’s victory on the field.
