CORRUPTED FOOTBALL OFFICIALS CORNERED IN SPAIN – €10 MILLION FROM “GHOST FOOTBALLERS” ALLEGEDLY LAUNDERED

A news release from Europol on 25 February advised that, since 2018, the Spanish Civil Guard (Guardia Civil) has been investigating 2 football agents linked to one of the most relevant player representation agencies in Europe.  They are suspected of money laundering and tax evasion.  The operation has led to 5 prosecutions and, in the following weeks, several dozen will be called for court hearings.  The investigation uncovered that the football agents were part of a criminal network which manages football clubs in several countries, among which are Belgium, Cyprus and Serbia. The ghost player transfers were first revealed through social media and the 2016 investigation on football leaks.
