Shakira could face an eight-year prison sentence in a tax fraud case: Reports

A prosecutor’s office document has revealed that the Colombian superstar Shakira has a case of over €14.5m (£12.1m) tax evasion in Spain.

The document also reveals that a Spanish prosecutor is seeking an eight-year prison term for the superstar Shakira .

The singer is accused of failing to pay taxes between 2012 and 2014, a period when she says she did not live in the country.

Prosecutor's document seen by Reuters claims that Shakira bought a house in Barcelona in May 2012 while she was ordinarily resident there between 2012 and 2014.

According to the document, she faces an eight-year prison sentence and a fine of more than €23m if she is convicted.

She stated that she paid the tax authorities €17.2 million. In a previous statement released on Wednesday, her representatives said the case was "a violation of her rights in every way".

Spanish tax authorities said she owed, but she claimed no debts remained. The trial has not yet been scheduled.
