The Spanish police have officially set their sights on the problem of Shakira’s tax evasion.
Spanish prosecutors have presented a report on the alleged actions of the singer due to the influx of “sufficient evidence.”
As a result of all this, the singer could be jailed if convicted of evading £ 13 million in taxes for a total of four years.
Through Subway And conclusions, Shakira used shell companies to disguise the control of its assets between 2012 and 2014 and only emerged, legally, in countries considered “safe havens”.
However, the singer immediately began to fight the accusations and believes that since her 2012-2014 tax residence was in the Bahamas, she does not need to pay Spanish income tax, also known as d ‘IRPF.

A spokesperson for the singer even released a statement at the time and cleared up the lingering confusion over her legal status, as everything has been “cleared up” as of 2021.
