Spanish prosecutor asks for eight-year jail term for Shakira
A Spanish prosecutor is seeking a prison term of eight years for Colombian superstar Shakira over a 14.5 million-euro tax fraud case
The singer, who has sold more than 80 million records worldwide with hits such as "Hips Don't Lie"
earlier this week rejected a settlement offer from the prosecutor's office to close the case.
She is accused of failing to pay taxes between 2012 and 2014, a period in which Shakira says she did not live in Spain.
The prosecutor's document, seen by Reuters, asserts that Shakira was ordinarily resident in Spain between 2012 and 2014
n May 2012 bought a house in Barcelona which became a family home for herself, her partner and their son born in Spain in 2013.
It asked for an eight-year prison sentence and a fine of more than 23 million euros ($23.5 million) should she be found guilty.
