(CTN News) – A Spanish prosecutor is seeking eight years in prison for Colombian superstar Shakira over a 14.5 million-euro tax fraud case, a prosecutor’s office document shows.
As part of the show’s settlement offer, the singer rejected an offer from the prosecutor’s office that would have closed the case earlier this week.
It is alleged that Shakira failed to pay taxes between 2012 and 2014, a period when she claims not to have lived in Spain during that time.
