The Spanish prosecutor's office again accuses the Colombian singer Shakira of tax evasion on an especially large scale.
According to NBC News, the Barcelona prosecutor's office has filed charges that the performer did not pay almost 7 million euros. Allegedly, in 2018, during the El Dorado world tour, the artist hid her income, but instead withdrew the earned funds to offshores.
The prosecutor's office launched the second investigation in July this year. After collecting evidence, law enforcement officers made the charges public.

By the way, Shakira has previously been accused of tax evasion. The Spanish prosecutor's office claims that from 2012 to 2014, the artist did not pay the country 14.5 million euros. Shakira allegedly had to pay tax to Spain, because at that time she lived in the country and had to tax all international income there.
Meanwhile, the artist herself denies all accusations. The performer assures that she did not live in Barcelona on a permanent basis, and her official residence was in the Bahamas.

Shakira's trial will take place in November in Barcelona.
Recall that recently the singer stunned with a frank confession. Shakira said that after breaking up with footballer Gerard Piqué, she is living in the survival stage.
