Spanish prosecutor asks for 8 year jail term for Shakira, El Pais reports

Spanish daily El Pais reported on Friday that a prosecutor has requested more than eight years in prison and a fine of more than 23 million euros ($23.51 million) for Colombian diva Shakira in connection with a 14.5 million euro tax fraud case.

Shakira’s team and the prosecutor’s office were unavailable for comment right away.

This week the pop star rejected a settlement offer from the prosecutor’s office to close a fraud case in which she is accused of failing to pay taxes between 2012 and 2014, a period in which Shakira says she did not live in Spain.
