Lionel Messi Appears In Court For His Tax Fraud Trial (See Photos)

[ad_1]

Yesterday, Lionel Messi has appeared in court in Barcelona to testify for the first time at his tax fraud trial.

The 28-year-old Argentinian footballer, who plays for Barcelona, was cheered and jeered as he emerged from a van accompanied by his father, Jorge Horacio Messi.

The two are accused of using a chain of fake companies in Belize and Uruguay to avoid paying €4.16m (£3.23m) in taxes on €10.1m earned through the sale of his image rights between 2007 and 2009.

After his court appearance, the five-time world player of the year flew to the US, for a match representing his country.
