Spanish Judge Investigate Shakira For Tax Fraud

A Spanish judge is investigating alleged tax fraud by Colombian musician Shakira and is recommending that the case goes to trial.

The judge says that his three year probe found sufficient evidence for the case to go to court. The decision can be appealed though.

Prosecutors charged Shakira in 2019 for not paying 14.5 million euros in taxes in Spain between 2012 and 2014.

Shakira has denied any wrongdoing when she testified in 2019.

She could face jail time if found guilty of tax evasion.
