A man who has accused Argentine footballer Lionel Messi of fraud, embezzlement and money laundering. Now the Spanish court has dismissed the case he filed in 2020. Federico Rettori, an Argentine national living in Spain who claims to have previously worked for Messi’s charity, filed a similar complaint in 2019 which was dismissed. In it he claimed that “money received by the foundation which “should have been directed towards social causes” instead went towards “various private activities or bank accounts that were different from those declared by the foundation”.
Rettori named the Barcelona striker, Charity, his father Jorge and brother Rodrigo in a complaint filed in 2020 and added more evidence to testify to his claims, but Spain’s National Court in its ruling called for a two-year investigation. After “no criminal act” could be proved on behalf of the people targeted by the complaint”. The court also noted that Rettori was never appointed by Macy’s Foundation and dismissed the recent case filed against him. .
An association called “El Buene Camino” or “The Right Path” received 150,000 euros in 2014 and 2015 to curb infant mortality in Sierra Leone, Te Apex said. The project was terminated due to an Ebola epidemic in that area.
