Shakira to stand trial in Spain for tax fraud, prosecutors seeking an 8-year sentence

quote:

A Spanish judge has ordered pop star Shakira to stand trial for allegedly failing to pay $13.9 million in taxes on income that she earned between 2012 and 2014.

Prosecutors will seek an eight-year prison sentence and a stiff fine if they manage to win a conviction of the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer, who has denied any wrongdoing.

The 45-year-old performer has insisted that she only lived less than half of the time in Spain during the two-year period. She has rejected a plea agreement with prosecutors that would have spared her a trial.

Her public relations firm has said she has already paid all that she owed and an additional 3 million euros — or $2.8 million — in interest.

The court based in the town of Esplugues de Llobregat near Barcelona said Shakira will face six counts of tax fraud.

They better be sure to swear in her hips, for her hips don’t lie.

Well, then her hips wouldn't much of a concern. Imean, if they don't, in fact, lie.

I think it's silly that governments want to lock us up for tax evasion or fraud even after it's been paid back. Then the same governments will release violent felons with $500 bond.

I didn't think Spain actually ever prosecuted people for tax fraud and they used the threats as a shakedown

You’re right. I suppose the joke should have been “be sure to question her hips.”
