The Prosecutor’s Office requests four years in prison for the former tennis player and her ex-husband

BARCELONA, September 7 (.) –

Former tennis player Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and her ex-husband Josep Santacana will be tried from next Tuesday to Friday in the 25th Criminal Court of Barcelona for an alleged crime of removing assets.

In the document from the Prosecutor’s Office, consulted by . this Thursday, the former tennis player and her ex-husband are asked to be sentenced to four years in prison for an alleged crime of removing assets by allegedly hiding their assets through a front man to avoid paying the Bank. of Luxembourg a debt of 7.5 million euros.

The prosecutor details that the tennis player acted “under her husband’s instructions” once she was notified of the debt claim in July 2010.

He assures that the banking entity advanced to a Spanish bank the money that the tennis player had to pay as guarantor of a debt with the Treasury, and that is why the Bank of Luxembourg later demanded that he pay the amount he had paid.


The prosecutor maintains that both “devised a plan consisting of decapitalizing their numerous assets, thus frustrating the collection of said amount,” through which they emptied their checking accounts.

They made the money that Sánchez Vicario had collected in credits and for media reports “disappear”, and the prosecutor states that the tennis player was the owner and beneficiary of at least five companies and holders of several real estate properties that, after being notified of the debt, with the Treasury, they became in the name of a Uruguayan company.

Thus, “they carried out numerous sales operations in order to obtain money and hide it to thwart the collection” of the debt, and the Prosecutor’s Office accuses those who supposedly acted as front men as necessary collaborators, leaving them as the sole owner of the tennis player’s companies, in addition to the head and person in charge of the agency that carried out the operations of these companies.

For everything, the Prosecutor’s Office requests to convict them for an alleged crime of confiscation of assets or punishable insolvency: it demands four years in prison and 8,640 euros in fines for Sánchez Vicario and Santacana, in addition to 6.1 million in civil liability; and three and a half years in prison and a fine of 7,560 euros for the accomplices.
