Neymar Found Not Guilty Of Tax Evasion Charges In Brazil

According to a statement released by footballing superstar Neymar’s father, the Barcelona star has been cleared of tax evasion in Brazil. In 2016, Neymar was fined €56.7 million for failing to give report on his earnings from his contracts with Brazilian club Santos, Barcelona and his sponsors between 2011 and 2014. However, the appeals process was completed by a court and Neymar has been cleared of any wrongdoings. The forward’s case has been “officially closed”, Neymar’s father said on Tuesday.Quoting the father, he said “The proceeding is officially closed, thus it proves the lawfulness on every act we took. During four years of unfounded accusations me, my family and our employees suffered a lot and in every possible way. But albeit lots of people doubt, there’s justice in our country. Accusation by accusation, one after the other, they were all defeated by our defence, leaving it clear that we did not evade not one penny in taxes. Now I hope we can focus only in our jobs, and that me and my family can have the peace we deserve.” The news will come as a relief to Neymar, who has been linked to a fresh start with Ligue 1 side PSG ahead of the summer transfer deadline.Photo Credit: Getty
