Spain court orders the father of Barcelona star Neymar to testify in suspected tax fraud probe

  • Print

MADRID - A Spanish judge has ordered the father of Barcelona star Neymar and the club's chief financial officer to testify as witnesses in a case investigating an alleged tax fraud in the signing of the Brazil striker.

Pablo Ruz cites Neymar Da Silva Santos to appear at the National Court in Madrid on Oct. 1 and also requires Nestor Amela, Barcelona's financial director, to do the same later that day.

Ruz says in a statement Wednesday that he requires Neymar's father to provide the court with documents relating to his 22-year-old son's signing, including the payment terms and conditions, and wants Barcelona to supply its 2013 boardroom minutes up to June 10.

Neymar's transfer fee has been under scrutiny almost since his unveiling at the Camp Nou on June 3, 2013.
