However, under Spanish law a prison sentence less than 2 years can be served under trial which means Lionel Messi and his father are unlikely to go to jail. The Barcelona court also ordered Messi to pay a fine of 2 million euros (approx. 15 Crore INR) and his father to pay 1.5 million euros for the crimes.

Messi continued that he knew nothing about an alleged tax evasion scheme when he signed contracts related to image rights. Lionel and his father Jorge were accused by the Spanish tax office of defrauding the government of 4.2 million euros between 2007 and 2009.
