The footballer of Portugal and Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo, has finally accepted a penalty and as a result suspended a jail term which was awarded to him for the fraud of tax in Spain, signing a contract in order to settle a dispute which will cost him around a total of €18.8m.
Under the law of Spain, as a first criminal can serve anything less than a sentence of 2 years under the term of probation, Cristiano will not have to go to prison. The appearance in Court is expected to be of short term. And the officials of the court say that the player will only have to affirm that he has now accepted the deal.
Earlier, the former teammate of Ronaldo at the Real Madrid, named Xabi Alonso, walked in the court to face his own case of fraud of case with both of his hands in his pockets of the suit. His response to the questions of journalists was “Yes, all good”. Cristiano was compelled to enter the court and only through the front door because his request for VIP security measures in order to avoid the spotlight was refused by the court on Monday.
In the year 2017, Cristiano denied the allegation that he voluntarily used a structure of business in order to hide income that his picture rights generated in Spain between the year 2011 and 2014.
