Shakira accuses the Spanish Treasury of “using her” and “violating her privacy” – Music and Books – Culture

In the letter, to which EFE has had access, the lawyers for Shakira Isabel Mebarak, now defended by the Molins law firm in Barcelona, ​​accuse the Treasury of having mounted a “media campaign” with the sole objective of “forcing” the singer to “Despite your innocence, plead guilty and come to terms with the charges.”

The artist, the letter adds, “has scrupulously complied with all her tax obligations in the multiple territories with which she has had professional links”, without a single sanction, in addition to “carrying out extensive philanthropic work” through the Pies Foundation Barefoot and Latin America in Solidarity Action.

But since none of the sentences requested exceeds two years in jail and the singer has no criminal record, so in case of conviction she could avoid going to prison if the court agrees.

For this reason, it maintains that it had the obligation to pay taxes in Spain for all of its income regardless of whether it had been obtained in part in other countries and accuses it of using a network of companies based in a tax haven and in nations such as Malta. or Panama to hide your income.
