Spanish Court expels extortion body of evidence against Lionel Messi

Spain’s National Court on Monday, September 30, declared it had expelled a protest against Barcelona’s Lionel Messi documented by a previous worker of the Argentine footballer’s establishment, who had blamed him for extortion, theft and illegal tax avoidance.

Dismissing the case, the judge wrote that the complaint “was based on an account put together from stories in the press, without bringing even a single element that was personally and directly known” by the plaintiff.

The complaint was filed in June by Federico Rettori, an Argentine national living in Majorca who formerly worked for Messi’s charity.

In it, he named the Barcelona striker, the charity, his father Jorge and brother Rodrigo and “all the people, as yet unidentified, who in one form or another administered or managed the funds at the Leo Messi Foundation,” the document said

He claimed that funds received by the foundation which “should have been directed to social causes” instead went “towards various private activities or bank accounts that differed from those that were declared by the foundation”.

Rettori also filed suit in Argentina on similar grounds in 2018. According to a judicial source, it prompted the opening of a preliminary investigation but so far, neither Messi nor his father have been charged.
