Prosecutors Seek 10-Year Prison Term For Eto'o Over Tax Fraud

Spanish prosecutors are seeking a prison term of more than 10 years for former Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o for alleged tax crimes committed when he played for the Catalan club.

In addition to a sentence of 10 years and six months, prosecutors are also demanding a fine of $15.1 million for the four counts of tax fraud for supposedly defrauding Spain's tax authority of almost $4 million from 2006-09, according to court documents released Thursday.


Prosecutors are seeking the same punishment for the player's representative at the time, Jose Maria Mesalles Mata. The administrator of a company that facilitated the deals, Manuel de Jesus Lastre Abreu, is facing more than six years in prison and a fine of $2.3 million.

Prosecutors also want Eto'o to relinquish any possible fiscal incentives for a long period.

Eto'o is among other current and past Barcelona players facing legal problems in Spain.
