SHORT NEWS UPDATES:
RONALDO RECEIVES 24 Month PRISON & 22M USD PENALTY
Cristiano Ronaldo has been handed a 24-month-long prison sentence by the Spanish authorities for tax evasion, but will not be required to serve it. Ronaldo will pay approximately ₹150 crore (€18.8 million), including a fine, back taxes, interest accrued on the back taxes and a per-day amount covering his sentence. Ronaldo owed the Spanish government €5.7 million in taxes.
The good news is Ronaldo will not server the prison of 2 years:
Whilst the Portuguese will be paying the fine he will not be serving any prison time despite the sentence.
In Spanish law, first-time offenders committing non-violent crimes tend to avoid actually going to prison if their sentences are two years or less. Instead, the sentence is served under probation meaning Ronaldo won’t be going to prison unless he re-offends during the two-year spell.
