  • Barcelona soccer star Messi sentenced to 21 months in prison

     Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi has been sentenced to 21 months in prison after a court in Barcelona found him guilty of three counts of tax fraud, a statement from the court said on Wednesday.

    The court also sentenced the Argentine soccer player's father, Jorge, to 21 months in prison for the same three crimes. The sentence can be appealed through the Spanish supreme court, the statement said.

    However, under Spanish law a prison sentence under two years can be served under probation, meaning Messi and his father are unlikely to go to jail.

    The court ordered Messi to pay a fine of around 2 million euros ($2.21 million) and his father to pay 1.5 million euros for the crimes.

    The demonstrators, who came from an area commonly referred to as Kersa Kuntoma in the Nifas Silk Laphto Sub-City located in western part of Addis Ababa, have said that their right has been violated by Kebele administration officials of the Addis Ababa City planning to demolish their houses whereas the city administration has sited the area as ‘illegal settlement.’    

    The Palace officials have told the gathering to dismiss that a platform will be facilitated over the matter to be discussed, it was learned.

    Last week, two police officers and one woreda official were killed in the area following the confrontations occurred after the woreda administrator summoned local residents for a meeting to discuss the issue of illegal settlement.

    At the meeting a mob—armed with blades sticks and rocks—that was refusing to be forcibly evicted from their houses awaited the administrator and the two police officers and eventually attacked them, which ultimately led to the death of the three.

    The two police officers, Michael Shiferaw (Insp.) and Tesfaye Bahiru (Dep. Insp.), and the woreda administrator, Tarik Fikre, were killed after confrontations due to illegal settlement turned deadly.

    Police then arrived at the scene and arrested some 200 residents suspected of being perpetrators of the crime, it has been reported.
