Court indicts Barcelona

A judge indicted Spanish football champions Barcelona over alleged tax crimes linked to their signing of Brazilian star striker Neymar.

Judge Pablo Ruz at Madrid’s National Court indicted the club after seeing “sufficient evidence to investigate a possible crime against the public treasury,” he said in a written ruling. The judge ordered tax authorities to hand over the club’s tax returns for 2011 to 2013.
