 Neymar has been in prison for 6 years because of fraud and corruption in Barcelona.


Neymar was involved in the case last year because of fraud and corruption in his transfer from Santos to Barcelona, when prosecutors thought he should be sentenced to two yearsimprisonment, when the Brazilian said in court that he was only focused on playing football and trusted his father and agent in everything else.

The Spanish national court has now decided to refer the case to a criminal court with three judges, which means they have decided that the case is more serious and could be sentenced to more than five yearsimprisonment.

Agence France-Presse said Judge Jos Mara Vzquez Honrubi of Spains National Court of Justice believed that Neymars transfer to Barcelona was commercial corruption and fraud according to the plaintiffs Brazilian company DIS, so Neymar could be sentenced to 4-6 years in prison. However, the next session of the case will be postponed.

The investigation into Neymars transfer began in January 2014, when Barcelona President Matteo Batumeiu was charged with tax fraud and his appeal was dismissed last year, so he had to stand trial.

Barcelona initially claimed that Neymars transfer fee was 17.1 million euros, but a member of the club protested and triggered legal proceedings, revealing that both sides agreed to pay Neymar 40 million euros in wages, when the case was settled out of court and then Barcelona President Rosell resigned. But Ba Tomei U, the successor of the latter, said that Barcelona actually paid 86 million 200 thousand euros for Neymars transfer. Subsequently DIS, the Brazilian investment company, filed a lawsuit alleging that Barcelona had not received a 40% share of the transfer fee due to fraud over the amount of the transfer fee. The company said it had not received all of the share due to the uncertainty of the final amount. Part of Neymars defense is that the case is within the jurisdiction of the Brazilian legal system, not Spain. The Spanish High Court said that although Batumeiu was only vice-chairman at the time, he also shared the management responsibility with Basel. Prosecutors in the case said the deal violated the rules of free competition in the transfer market for football players, and the hearing also pointed out that the possibility of corruption crimes between individuals is obvious.
