Leo Messi and his father, Jorge Messi, have been charged with a crime of money laundering in the Foundation that bears the name of the star of the FC Barcelona.

According to published on Friday the Argentine newspapers' La Nación and 'Clarín', the imputation, made by the prosecutor Pablo Turano before the judge Gustavo Meirovich, also includes in his accusation “all those persons who have handled funds of the Leo Messi Foundation”. Sources of the soccer player's environment have assured the Argentine press that this imputation lacks “any foundation”.

A former collaborator of the foundation gave a statement this week and referred illicit maneuvers with funds that were received and then not invested in social projects, as the law dictates.
