Forward of football club “Barcelona” and the Brazilian national team Neymar has filed a lawsuit in court against the government for leaking information about the investigation of tax crimes attributed to him and his family.
In the Federal court of Brasilia, the claim received on may 17. Earlier in March of 2016, the Federal court of Brazil’s Sao Paulo, Neymar found guilty of tax evasion (2012-2014). According to the court decision, the striker of the Brazilian national team must transfer to the Treasury of the state of 46 million euros.
Note that the name of the 24-year-old Neymar appears in another high-profile case. The leadership of “Barcelona” was accused of tax evasion in the amount of 13 million euros in the transition of the Brazilian to the Catalan club.
Initially, the former President of Barcelona Sandro Rosell has stated that Neymar cost the club 57.1 million euros, but the team’s management later admitted the presence of additional contracts with the player, and the father of Neymar as the real cost of transition is called the sum of around 100 million euros.
This summer, Neymar added a few strokes in the history of football when he scored the fastest goal in the history of the Olympics, and then led Brazil to first Olympic title.
