Shakira to face trial over alleged tax fraud in Spain; prosecution seeks 8-year sentence


Singer Shakira to face trial for tax evasion in Spain, trial date to be announced soon.

Colombian singer Shakira may face trial in Spain. A judge has ordered the singer’s arrest on tax fraud charges on Sept 27, as per the Associated Press, quoting NBC News. There has been no set date yet for the trial to be taking place in Esplugues de Llobregat.

In 2018, Shakira was charged with tax evasion, to which Spanish prosecutors alleged that the singer hadn’t paid up to 14.5 million euros in taxes from 2012 to 2014. The government alleges that for a lengthy period Shakira lived in Spain, where Gerard Piqué, the soccer player with whom she is no longer romantically linked, resides and should have paid taxes, even though she was supposedly registered in the Bahamas.

In her October cover story for Elle, the singer was clear in denying the accusations and repaying her need to abide by the law. She stated that these claims were false and demonstrated impeccable conduct. The singer herself also addressed the false accusations in a video statement she made.

Shakira has been a subject of much news coverage as of late because she recently announced that she is divorcing Gerard Pique. The married couple have been together for eleven years and share two children, but announced their divorce because it was in the best interest of the children.
