The jueza of the National High Court, María Tardón, has filed the complaint presented by an individual against Leo Messi, several members of his family and his foundation by supposed crimes against the public Inland revenue, countable, swindle and bleaching of capitals.

In the failed, the jueza signals that after one "especially complex and exhaustive investigation" of two years has not found evidence that it existed a criminal performance any by part of the reported, as it has given to know the Fiscalía in his request of sobreseimiento.

In concrete, has not determined that the Foundation Leo Messi was a mere instrument used by the reported to hide and divert bottoms to evade the payment of taxes and incorporate them to his heritage, such as it sustained Federico Rettori, the one who was the one who made the complaint.

Besides, Tardón indicates also that it has not checked that they used banking accounts to hide the true owner of goods neither the use of concepts that did not correspond with the works of the foundation.

The magistrate collects that of the documentation contributed by the Foundation Messi gives off that the denouncer (Rettori) did not arrive to have labour relation any with the same and adds that neither it has accredited any another class of contractual bond of which derived for him some class of damage.

It concludes that no only it has not accredited to have suffered damage any, "but the possible irregularities that invoked in his complaint have showed clearly non-existent" after the diligences practised and after the analyses of the reports of the Agency Tributaria, of the Catalan Protectorate of Foundations and of the Foundation Messi.

Also it adds that "given the scarce reliability of the denouncer, agreed make an exhaustive investigation of the performances of the Foundation Messi in Spain".

The failed relates that it discovered that "through the Social society Team presented to the Foundation Leo Messi a proposal of collaboration in a project to struggle against the childish mortality in Sierra Leone, that went to lead the association By a good way, that the denouncer chaired, and that saw frustrated".

Other details to consider

The reason was that the Government of Sierra Leone paralysed the projects by the epidemic of the ébola, and that this was him communicated to Rettori on 8 September 2014, something that did not inform of this to the Foundation Leo Messi, "of which already had received for sufragar the project one hundred one thousand euros in two donations". It adds that in spite of what notified him, received a new donation of 50.000 euros for the already non-existent project in June of 2015.

The jueza remembers that Rettori formulated the demand against the Foundation Leo Messi to obtain the whole amount of what would have supposed the cost of the project, but that desisted of the same after an agreement.
