Cristiano Ronaldo denies tax fraud at court hearing

first_imgHe follows in the footsteps of his arch-rival, Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, who was found guilty of the same offence last year.“I have never hidden anything, nor have I had the intention of evading taxes,” Ronaldo, 32, told the court, according to a statement from the sports agency which represents him, Gestifute.“I always voluntarily file my tax returns because I think we all must file a return and pay taxes according to our income. Those that know me, know what I ask my advisors: that they have everything up to date and properly paid, because I don’t want problems.”The world’s highest-paid sports personalities in 2016 (Forbes magazine) © AFP / Sébastien CASTERANAccused of having evaded 14.7 million euros ($17.3 million) in tax, he entered and left the court in Pozuelo de Alarcon, a wealthy suburb of Madrid where he lives, via an underground garage to avoid the press.Prosecutors allege he took “advantage of a company structure created in 2010 to hide income generated in Spain from his image rights from tax authorities”.They say this was a “voluntary and conscious breach of his fiscal obligations in Spain”.Prosecutors accuse the four-time world player of the year of evading tax via a shell company based in the British Virgin Islands and another in Ireland, known for low corporate tax rates.In addition, they say the Real Madrid striker only declared 11.5 million euros of Spanish-related income from 2011 to 2014, while what he really earned during that time was close to 43 million euros.They also accuse him of “voluntarily” refusing to include 28.4 million euros in income linked to the sale of his image rights for the 2015 to 2020 period to a Spanish company.– ‘Legal and legitimate’ –Members of the press gather outside a court in Pozuelo de Alarcon, in Spain, where Cristiano Ronaldo appeared, on July 31, 2017 © AFP / GERARD JULIENRonaldo told the court he did not create a “special structure” to manage his image rights when he moved to Real in 2009 but simply maintained the one set up in 2004 while he was at Manchester United “long before I thought of coming to Spain”.This structure had been deemed “legal and legitimate” by the British tax office.The affair has taken its toll on Ronaldo. According to press reports, Real’s all-time top goalscorer threatened to leave Spain over the affair, giving supporters a fright.He has since decided to stay on, according to Real coach Zinedine Zidane.If he were put on trial and found guilty, Ronaldo would risk “a fine of at least 28 million” euros and could potentially be jailed for three and a half years, the Gestha union of experts at Spain’s Inland Revenue has said.Since extending his contract last November until 2021, Ronaldo is the highest paid sports star in the world with $93 million earned in 2016-2017, according to Forbes.Cristiano Ronaldo entered the court in Pozuelo de Alarcon in a car with tainted windows via an underground garage to avoid the glare of dozens of cameras © AFP / OSCAR DEL POZORonaldo is not the only footballer to fall foul of authorities in Spain, which is only just recovering from a damaging economic crisis that saw countless people lose their jobs and inequalities rise.Messi was sentenced to a 21-month jail sentence and 2.09 million-euro fine last year for tax fraud.His prison sentence has since been replaced by another fine of 252,000 euros, which corresponds to 400 euros for each day of jail.Barcelona’s Argentine defender Javier Mascherano, meanwhile, agreed a one-year suspended sentence with authorities for tax fraud last year.Brazil star Neymar, another Barcelona forward, and his parents are also due to stand trial for alleged corruption over his transfer from Santos in 2013.Real have not been spared either.Apart from Ronaldo, former player Angel di Maria, Portuguese defender Fabio Coentrao and Jose Mourinho, who coached the club from 2010 to 2013, have all been accused of tax fraud.All are clients of super-agent Jorge Mendes, who was also questioned and put under official investigation last month by a Spanish court investigating alleged tax evasion by Monaco’s former Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao, another footballer in his stable.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Portugal and Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo is the world’s highest paid athlete, according to Forbes magazine © AFP/File / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVMadrid, Spain, Jul 31 – Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo denied hiding millions of euros in income at a court hearing near the Spanish capital on Monday where he was charged with tax evasion.The Portuguese — the world’s highest paid sportsman according to Forbes magazine — is the latest football star to fall foul of Spain’s taxman.last_img read more

Around Whittier

first_imgWHITTIER – The Board of Directors of the Whittier Uptown Association voted Monday to cut a proposed fee increase by half for restaurants on Greenleaf Avenue and Philadelphia Street.

Report details blaze death

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre The Varshocks joined firefighters in the engine cab because their vehicle stalled. The engine didn’t have enough room to back out of a small clearing and stopped running. At that point, the report said, the heat exploded the passenger windows of the engine cab. Three firefighters took cover with Varshock’s son in a rocky area nearby. A fourth firefighter ran the other way after being overtaken by wind-driven flames. He was found about 40 minutes later behind a different rocky outcropping. The CDF response to such situations will be re-evaluated. SAN DIEGO – An inferno exploded a fire engine’s windows, forcing firefighters to take cover behind boulders after they followed a man and his son back to their burning mobile home during last month’s wildfires, state authorities said Thursday. Thomas Varshock was killed and his teenage son and four firefighters were severely burned in the episode, which happened two hours after the Harris Fire erupted Oct. 21 near the rural town of Potrero, about 40 miles east of San Diego. Varshock, driving a white pickup truck trailed by his son’s all-terrain vehicle, asked firefighters to check on his house as they headed toward threatened homes and told them there were people in another home nearby, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection’s preliminary report said. A fire captain told Varshock to get out of the area, but he and his son followed the engine back down the dirt road. Firefighters met thick smoke but kept going after Varshock told them there was water and a good place to turn around near his ridgetop house. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FOOTBALL: ULSTER SENIOR LEAGUE SEASON GETS UNDERWAY THIS WEEKEND

first_imgThe Ulster Senior League season begins in earnest this week with the first round of games in the Donegal News League Cup.Holders, Letterkenny Rovers will play in Group B along with League Champions Derry City Reserves and last year’s League runners-up Cockhill Celtic. The line up in Group B is completed with Swilly Rovers who finished in 4th place last season so this is certainly a tough looking group. Meanwhile over in Group A last year’s Donegal News League Cup runners-up, Drumkeen Utd. are joined by the league’s most successful side, Fanad Utd., Kildrum Tigers, last year’s Knockalla Cup winners and new boys, Finn Harps Reserves. The games get underway in Group B on Saturday evening at the Charlie O’Donnell Sports Grounds in Cockhill with Celtic facing Jason Gibson’s Swilly Rovers at 6:30pm. The home side will be favourites to shade it despite last week’s setback in the Knockalla Caravan’s Cup against Drumkeen.There are three games down for decision on Sunday afternoon with holders Letterkenny Rovers taking on League Champions Derry City at Leckview Park in the other Group B tie. Rovers had to rely on penalties to get past Donegal League leaders, Glenea Utd. last week in the Knockalla Cup while Derry had a comfortable passage to the quarter-finals after a 4-0 victory over Moville Celtic and they will start favourites in Letterkenny. Fanad Utd. host Bonagee in Group A and Ollie Horgan’s men will look to bounce back from what was for them a down season last year. They have lost several influential players to begin the season and Sean Sandilands will be hopeful that Bonagee can spring a surprise in this one.The other Group A game down for decision this Sunday see’s last year’s runners-up, Drumkeen play host to Maurice Toland’s Kildrum Tigers. Both teams had good wins in last week’s cup games with Drumkeen overcoming the challenge of Cockhill and the Tigers seeing of a Milford Utd. team that had been in very good form by an impressive score of 3-0. Drumkeen have proven very difficult to beat at home in cup games in recent seasons so a draw would be no surprise here. Saturday, April 13th at 6:30pmGroup BCockhill Celtic v Swill Rovers Ref. P.

Twitter Japan Will Allow Users to Charge for Access to Their Tweets

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#news#web Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting frederic lardinois A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Don’t Pay for Twitter – Pay for Accessing TweetsAccording to today’s reports, which still lack a lot of detail, Twitter users will have a number of options to pay for these account. According to Media magazine’s Anita Davis, users can pay monthly subscriptions with their credit cards and the pay-per-tweet options could be “charged to credit card, convenience store top-up cards or carrier billing for Twitter-on-mobile users.”Overall, this looks like an interesting business model for the Japanese market. Instead of charging its users directly for the use of Twitter, this option gives content producers the option to charge for their work. This new payment system will also give news organizations the option to experiment with delivering paid news, for examples.. Would You Pay To Access Premium Tweets?In the rest of the world, however, Twitter is more likely to make money through charging for premium accounts that add new features (analytics, verified accounts, etc.). Image credit: itmedia.co.jp Twitter’s Japanese partner, Digital Garage, will soon introduce a micropayment system that will give Twitter users the option to charge for access to their tweets. According to Media magazine, users will be able hide access to images, external URLs and text behind a paywall and other users would only be able to see this content if they either paid for a monthly subscription or through a pay-per-tweet option. Twitter itself will take a 30% cut. Kenichi Sugi, the COO of Digital Garage Mobile, announced this new business model at mobidec2009 earlier this week. The paid accounts will go live in January 2010.Twitter’s Japanese subsidiary has always been somewhat different from Twitter’s main site. Twitter Japan already offers advertising options, for example.
