Baku. 26 May. REPORT.AZ/ Player of Spanish club Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo could face five year prison sentence for tax fraud.
Report informs citing Marca, officials from the Spanish Ministry of Finance (GESTHA) have supported the Tax Agency's claim that Cristiano Ronaldo failed to pay millions in tax between 2011 and 2013, each of the three years in question could amount to a criminal tax offence as the allegedly defrauded amounts exceed 600,000 EUR.
